On October 4, 2023, partner Tom Hentoff will speak on the keynote panel at the Media Law Resource Center 2023 Media Law Conference. The panel, titled “Fair Use, Parody and Transformation,” will discuss the Supreme Court’s decisions in Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith and Jack Daniel’s Properties, Inc. v. VIP Products LLC. Other panelists include Harvard Professor Rebecca Tushnet, who wrote amicus briefs in both cases; Roman Martinez of Latham & Watkins, who argued Warhol before the Supreme Court; Susan Kohlmann of Jenner & Block, who submitted amicus briefs in both cases; and moderator James Rosenfeld of Davis Wright Tremaine.
Tom’s practice is concentrated in three areas: intellectual property disputes, First Amendment and media law, and complex civil litigation. Law360 named Tom as one of five Media & Entertainment MVPs in 2021 and 2022, recognition given to “an elite group of attorneys who are leaders in their practice areas and have seen extraordinary wins in the past year.” Chambers USA has consistently recognized Tom as a leading individual among Washington, D.C. media and entertainment lawyers and national First Amendment litigators. Chambers reports clients praise Tom for his “excellent judgment,” “fantastic sensibility” for business issues, and “thorough, analytical approach to copyright issues”; one client noted that Tom “would be on my dream team of lawyers.”
