KWIKA Managing Partner Larry Iser was quoted in Los Angeles Times, Reuters, Bloomberg, The Guardian, and appeared on CBS Evening News and the podcast “The Not Old – Better Show” to discuss the ongoing copyright infringement lawsuit filed against the band Led Zeppelin over their iconic song “Stairway to Heaven.” According to Larry, the controversial “Blurred Lines” verdict delivered last year has spurred an increase in this type of litigation, particularly in the music industry.
“Post ‘Blurred Lines’ there’s a new tendency for people to think that these cases are easy pickings,” Larry told Bloomberg.
