Rohit Nath has been named a Sports and Entertainment Trailblazer by the National Law Journal in its second compilation of lawyers who are leaders in sports and entertainment industry litigation. Nath has established a successful practice of pursuing entertainment-related intellectual property cases on behalf of artists, such as musicians and writers. Not only does Nath secure winning decisions for the artists he represents, but his cases are focused on cutting-edge issues related to the impact of rapid technological change in the music and publishing industries.
Nath currently represents Flo & Eddie (the founding members of 60’s music group, The Turtles) along with a class of owners of pre-1972 sound recordings for copyright violations by music providers Sirius XM and Pandora. Flo & Eddie settled with Sirius XM in a deal, which was approved by the Court, worth up to $73 million. Nath is now litigating a similar action against Pandora.
Nath also represents a putative class of professors and textbook authors in Bernstein, et al. v. Cengage Learning, Inc., a lawsuit against one of the world’s largest textbook publishers, Cengage Learning, related to underpayment of royalties for electronic textbook offerings.
