Dance Dance Legal Revolution (Ep. 64)

Dance Dance Legal Revolution (Ep. 64)

On this week’s episode, we bring you our IPLJ’s event held earlier this month, Dance Dance Legal Revolution. Moderated by IPLJ Associate Editor, Kara Krakower, the panel will discuss the popular video game Fortnite, created by Epic Games, which has recently found itself in hot water for selling content that mirrors dance moves made famous by other artists. Some of those artists, such as Brooklyn rapper 2 Milly and star of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Alfonso Ribeiro, have gone as far as to bring suit against Epic Games for the appropriation of their art, image, and brand. The attorneys of Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP, will be joining us for a discussion about the lawsuits, its cultural implications, and the attorneys’ experience working at a young, up-and-coming law firm.

Our theme song is Roller Blades by Otis McDonald.
