CLL Resumes its Traditional Role in Authoring the Copyright Column Published by the New York Law Journal
Since January 2022, the New York Law Journal has been publishing every other month a column on Copyright Law co-authored by Thomas Kjellberg (Cowan Liebowitz & Latman, P.C.) and Robert W. Clarida (Reitler Kailas & Rosenblatt LLP). Here is a link to the column published by the NYLJ on September 30, 2022, entitled “Hanagami v. Epic Games: One Small Step.” You may wish to bookmark our running list linking the texts of future columns.
This continues a tradition started 40 years ago. At least as early as 1982, the NYLJ published a Copyright Law column, first co-authored by CLL founder Alan Latman and then CLL Associate Jane Ginsburg. David Goldberg took over, and he subsequently was joined as co-author by Robert J. Bernstein while they both were Partners at CLL. This continued even after Bob Bernstein left CLL to start his own firm. After David Goldberg passed away, Bob Clarida, then a CLL Partner, assumed the co-authorship of this column with Bob Bernstein. They continued to co-author the column even after they both had left CLL.
Early this year co-authorship of the column came back to CLL; CLL counsel Tom Kjellberg is now jointly authoring the column with Bob Clarida. Tom Kjellberg is well known in copyright circles because for many years he has been the chief author of the Annual Review of Copyright Cases published by the Copyright Society of the USA and delivered at the Copyright Society’s annual meeting.
