Media - Monica McCabe, Chair of the Intellectual Property Law Practice, mentioned in Bloomberg Law article highlighting hip hop artist and actor LL Cool J "Rock the Bells" trademark infringement case12/10/2018 | Bloomberg Law
From the article:
"Monica McCabe, an entertainment and IP attorney at Phillips Nizer LLP in New York, saw parallels between Smith’s claims on rights to the song title to the frequent clashes between musicians and politicians who use their work while campaigning. Song titles themselves aren’t copyrightable. But McCabe said artists could establish trademark rights if they show a strong association between artist and title, and that use of the title or song confuses consumers into thinking the artist is involved."
