Defended a global mobility company in copyright infringement litigation alleging that mobile network carriers were liable for unauthorized sharing of plaintiffs' greeting card style MMS messages over their networks. The Ninth Circuit held, among other things, that the carrier defendants had no duty to implement a Digital Rights Management system to filter infringing content exchanged over their networks.

Undeterred, the plaintiffs reformulated their case as an antitrust class action against defendants. The antitrust team with support from the copyright team again successfully defended client against the reformulated claims.
