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
