Claimed Lawyer ProfileBlawg SearchSocial MediaResponsive Law

My focus is on publishing and entertainment transactions. I counsel authors, agents, composers, literary estates, publishing professionals, publishers and other businesses and individuals on copyright, licensing, fair use, defamation, privacy, and trademark related matters. I also review or "vet" manuscripts for media perils such as libel. Before becoming an attorney I was Director of Publicity for Prentice Hall Press and the Simon & Schuster General Reference Group. Prior to forming my firm, I was a trademark associate with Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman in NYC. Clients gain access to all of the knowledge, counsel, and advocacy that my firm can provide. I'm co-author of The Copyright Permission & Libel Handbook (John Wiley & Sons). A graduate of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, I'm admitted in New York and New Jersey. Memberships include the Trademark & Unfair Competition Committee of the Bar of the City of New York and The Authors Guild. Contact: jassin@copylaw.com Tel: (212) 354-4442 ATTY ADV
