Recent Developments in the Right of Publicity in Video Games [1.5 hours Cal. MCLE credit available*]

Colorado Center Community Rm

2500 Broadway, Santa Monica, 90404

7:00pm to 8:30pm

Manuel Noriega wants to prevent Activision from depicting him as a war criminal. Lindsay Lohan wants a cut of Rock Star Games’ Grand Theft Auto game because of its trashy blonde character. Electronic Arts has canceled all future installments of its NCAA football games. As Justice Kozinski warned in his now-famous dissenting opinion in White v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc., 989 F.2d 1512 (9th Cir. 1993): “Something very dangerous is going on here.” In this MCLE program, USC law professor Dan Nabel will discuss the evolution of the right of publicity in video game cases,
including an in-depth look at where the law may be headed.

Prof. Dan Nabel directs the USC Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic (IPTLC), which provides basic intellectual property legal assistance to Los Angeles based artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, small businesses, non-profit organizations, innovators, independent gamemakers and others who cannot afford to pay market rates for legal services. The IPTLC gives students hands-on experience handling legal issues at the intersection of intellectual property law and technology while simultaneously enabling creative projects in the Los Angeles area to flourish. Prior to joining USC’s faculty, Professor Nabel practiced law at Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman &
Machtinger, LLP in Century City, where he successfully litigated numerous high-profile cases and advised clients on copyright, fair use, trademark, and right of publicity issues, among many others.

*CLA is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider. This program qualifies for 1.5 hours of general participatory MCLE credit and zero hours of Legal Ethics, Elimination of Bias and/or Competence Issues credit. This event may meet the requirements for continuing legal education credits in other states. Please check with the
bar in the state in which you are seeking credits to determine whether this event is eligible.

The Hudson Mainstage

539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, 90038


Critically Acclaimed Production "ALMOST, MAINE" by John Cariani returns to Los Angeles with Stellar Cast

Opening December 5th through December 21st in a limited engagement at The Hudson Mainstage, 539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. 90038.

Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – It’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite. In this Los Angeles production, director Martin Papazian leads his ensemble and audiences alike through the story of nine couples falling in and out of love in this beautifully poetic and magical love story.

Featuring Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), Peter Breitmayer (“Fargo“), Alex Desert (“Swingers”), Marina Benedict (“Flesh and Bone”), Martin Papazian (“Jarhead”), Dan Warner, Lester Purry, Nell Teare, Laura Marie Steigers, Alexandra Hulme, Tyne Stecklien, Misa Moosekian, Samantha Sloyan (”Scandal”), Devin Crittenden, Travis Myers, John Lacy, Steve Fife.
