"Conference Report: California Bar IP Section “Entertainment & Media” (and Stan Lee!)"

Conference Report: California Bar IP Section “Entertainment & Media” (and Stan Lee!)
July 16th, 2008 by Thayer Preece

"Last month, attorneys from across the state of California gathered in the posh Beverly Hills Hotel, vacation home of the stars, for the Intellectual Property Section of the California State Bar’s conference on Entertainment & Media. (With special guest appearance by Stan Lee!) The panels included one on the law and virtual worlds. (That wasn’t the one with Stan Lee.) The virtual worlds panel consisted of in-house attorneys from Fox, Disney, and Sony, and was moderated by James Nguyen, an attorney who represented Marvel in their lawsuit against NCsoft, makers of the game City of Heroes. (But did I mention… Stan Lee?)"
