Copyright Litigation
No one expects to be involved in a lawsuit. Most people would rather not even think about the possibility of litigation. But what if your client finds that a song or story he or she has written, or a print he or she has created, has been copied without permission? Or if your client receives a cease and desist letter threatening litigation? Join attorney Gregory Goeckner in this discussion of copyright litigation, including how to initiate a suit; jurisdiction; requirements for entry into federal court and the impacts they have on copyright litigation; how to respond if your client is threatened with a lawsuit; and how to counsel your client to avoid litigation in the first place.

Greg P. Goeckner is a recent transplant to the Seattle area who has extensive experience with U.S. and international intellectual property law and litigation management. He worked for over 15 years for the Motion Picture Association of America, most recently as its General Counsel. Greg was an entertainment litigator with O'Melveny & Myers in Los Angeles and a law clerk for The Hon. Robert J. Kelleher of the US District Court in Los Angeles. He received his J.D. from Yale Law School and his B.S. from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He also served as a Member of the Board of Trustees and an officer of the Los Angeles Copyright Society from 2005 to 2010 and received the California State Bar IP Section's Vanguard Award for In-House Counsel in 2009.
