Partner Tom Hentoff recently participated in a Practising Law Institute Studio Briefing titled “IP Discussions with Joshua Simmons”. In this CLE accredited program, Tom and other panelists examined the intellectual property laws surrounding photography, in an intimate and engaging round table discussion of the following topics:
- How are photographs protected by copyright and how has the U.S. Copyright Office assisted in making protection easier for photographers?
- What are the legal issues associated with photograph licensing?
- What are the issues the Supreme Court will be considering in an upcoming fair use case? (Because the firm is involved in the case, Tom did not comment on this topic.)
- What are the legal risks of website embedding?
Tom Hentoff serves as Co-Chair of Williams & Connolly’s Trademark and Copyright and First Amendment and Media practice groups. His practice is concentrated in three areas: intellectual property disputes, First Amendment and media law, and complex civil litigation. Tom has represented clients in a wide variety of copyright, trademark, trade secret, defamation, privacy, false-advertising, and class action litigation and counseling matters.
