Brian Murphy knows intellectual property law. And you probably don’t.
His practice focuses on copyright, trademark, right of publicity/ right of privacy, false advertising, unfair competition, and defamation, providing counsel to advertising agencies, advertisers, and entertainment companies as they develop and produce advertising and entertainment properties across all media. Brian negotiates and structures agreements relating to celebrity talent, product placement, sponsorship, content licenses, and agency-client contracts, and assists clients in the development and execution of complex promotions and programs, including those involving user- generated content, social networking, and interactive, mobile, and other emerging content platforms. He regularly advises clients on the development and production of branded entertainment projects such as television shows, films, live events, electronic games, webisodes, mobisodes, and web sites.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (BA, magna cum laude, 1989; Phi Beta Kappa) and New York University School of Law (JD, cum laude, 1992), Brian is an Adjunct Professor of Law at New York Law School. He previously taught at Fordham University Law School and has lectured at the Parsons School of Design.
