Partner David Halberstadter Comments on Theater's Spider-Man License Case in Law360

Firm News | November 7, 2013

David Halberstadter, a partner in the Entertainment and Media practice, is quoted in a Law360 article on The Walt Disney Company’s case against a Pennsylvania theater over an allegedly infringing Broadway tribute show. The theater claims that it believed it was legally licensing the rights to Spider-Man from Stan Lee Media Inc. (SLMI). David commented that “if SLMI does not own the rights to the Spider-Man character, then the theater has no valid license to use the character, no matter what it thought or believed, at the time or now.” He added, “The theater could only have gotten such rights as SLMI could grant, and if it had no rights, the theater had no rights, either.” (“Theater’s Spider-Man License Defense Likely Won’t Stick,” November 7, 2013)
