Katten's Representation of Lionsgate in Mad Men Lawsuit Noted by The Hollywood Reporter

Firm News | April 25, 2013

Katten and David Halberstadter, a partner in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice, are mentioned in a Hollywood Reporter article in connection with the defense of a lawsuit filed against Lionsgate by an ex-model over the use of her image in the title sequence of the hit AMC series Mad Men. Lionsgate, which produces the show, is accused of violating publicity rights by failing to obtain consent to use the image in a montage of period advertisements that appear in the show’s opening credits. In response, the company has filed an anti-SLAPP motion seeking to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that the opening credits have transformative value and arise from First Amendment activity.
