Embedding social media and other third-party content is standard operating procedure for today's online writers and, for over a decade, has widely been considered non-infringing.

But earlier this year, a New York court challenged that assumption, allowing a claim for copyright infringement to proceed against nine online publications for embedding in their articles a Tweeted photograph of Tom Brady without getting permission from the photographer. The decision sent shockwaves through the online publishing world.  With an interlocutory appeal now pending in the Second Circuit, the case could be on a crash course with contrary authority in the Ninth Circuit, paving the way for a circuit split on a critical issue at the intersection of copyright and the Internet. 


Join us for a timely discussion on the practical and legal issues surrounding embedding, framing, and inline linking - an issue that affects bloggers, re-tweeters, media outlets, and just about anyone else who shares content online.





Joseph C. Gratz, a partner at Durie Tangri in San Francisco, is a litigator who is as comfortable on his feet in court as he is hashing over source code with a group of engineers.  Vice-Chair of the American Bar Association IP Section's Committee on Copyright and New Technologies, Joe is a respected commentator on copyright and Internet law. In addition to his work at Durie Tangri, Joe teaches Cyberlaw at the University of California - Hastings College of the Law. 



Scott Alan Burroughs, a partner at Doniger / Burroughs in Venice, has handled over a thousand art and business law disputes in his decade of practice - more than virtually any other attorney in the United States. His matters involve fashion, art, photography, scripted and reality programming, accessories, literature, documentary and feature films, websites, advertising, novelty goods, jewelry, hospitality, and home décor. In one representative case, Mr. Burroughs resolved a rights dispute regarding one of the most popular web series of all time. He has obtained numerous six and seven-figure results for his clients, and a number of the top copyright jury verdicts in Los Angeles.


Jeremy S. Goldman (moderator) is a partner in the Litigation Group at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC and Co-Chair of the LA Chapter of the CUSA.  Jeremy represents companies, brands and individuals in the media, film, television, gaming, advertising and technology spaces. He frequently counsels clients, litigates claims and resolves complex disputes involving copyright, breach of contract, the First Amendment, right of publicity, chain of title, trademark and intermediary liability.  Jeremy has written and spoken extensively on these and other topics.  In 2015, after spending eight years with the firm in New York, Jeremy moved across the country with his wife and two children to help launch Frankfurt Kurnit's LA office.  He is admitted to practice in New York and California.
