MSK Authors Copyright Alliance Amicus Brief in Aereo Case

September 27, 2012

MSK attorneys Steven Metalitz, Eric Schwartz and Matthew Williams prepared the amicus brief filed by the Copyright Alliance on behalf of hundreds of thousands of songwriters, composers, music publishers, recording artists, and record labels, Alliance members ASCAP, Broadcast Music, Inc., Association of Independent Music Publishers, National Music Publishers' Association, Church Music Publishers Association, Recording Industry Association of America, The Recording Academy, and SESAC, that argued the district court's decision would sharply reduce the scope of the public performance right for retransmission of music or television programs containing music, especially through the Internet, and invite other services to market 'user storage based' services designed to evade the public performance right. MSK is a Copyright Alliance Legal Advisory Board Member.
