Copyright Misuse or Judicial Abuse – Disney Enterprise, Inc. v. Redbox Automated Retail, LLC
Robert Rotstein will be speaking at the Los Angeles Copyright Society's event on "Copyright Misuse or Judicial Abuse – Disney Enterprise, Inc. v. Redbox Automated Retail, LLC." The panel will take place on Monday, May 14, 2018.
Historically, the courts have shown great reluctance to apply the oft-raised but rarely successful copyright-misuse defense. Please join us for an interactive presentation about the misuse defense and its application (and non-application), including a discussion of the recent district court opinion in Disney Enterprises, Inc., v. Redbox Automated Retail, LLC. Through a series of hypothetical scenarios, Bob Rotstein will trace the history of the misuse defense and address whether the Redbox opinion is an outlier or rather signals a new judicial willingness to apply the defense.
