Bone McAllester Norton attorney Stephen Zralek, co-chair of the American Bar Association (ABA) Copyright Litigation Committee, has announced committee events to be held during the ABA annual meeting on August 6 in San Francisco. All committee members attending the annual meeting are invited to attend.
Committee Meeting/Roundtable Discussion: The Committee will meet Friday, August 6, from 11:45am to 12:45pm in the SoMa Room on the 3rd floor of the InterContinental San Francisco. Dale Cendali, a copyright litigation superstar at Kirkland & Ellis, will lead a roundtable discussion about current issues in copyright litigation and share some observations from her representation of The Associated Press in the lawsuit against Shepard Fairey (who used the AP's photo of President Obama to create a poster and other merchandise). As "Above the Law" Blog says: "In case you're not familiar with her, Dale Cendali is a big deal. . . . [she] is a Bad-Ass Litigatrix."
We'll also shape our agenda for the coming year and establish subcommittees, including Hot Topics, Bulletin, Webinars, and planning next year's Annual Meeting. .
Happy Hour: Drinks on Friday, August 6 at 6:30 at ThirstyBear Brewing Company, billed as "San Francisco's first & only organic brewery," located only 2 blocks from the Intercontinental at 661 Howard Street.
