DLA Piper Partner Joins American Law Institute Restatement of Copyright Law Project

Hugh Marbury, a partner in DLA Piper’s Baltimore Litigation practice, has joined the Members Consultative Group for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of Copyright law project. The Restatement strives for clear formulations of common law and its statutory elements and reflects the law as it presently stands or might appropriately be stated by a court. Marbury joins approximately 60 top intellectual property practitioners, professors and judges from around the country to contribute to this important scholarly work.

Founded in 1923, ALI is the nation’s leading independent organization that produces citable clarification and modernization of the law. The Copyright project is expected to include 11 chapters, including: General Principles; Subject Matter and Standards; Scope of Protection; Ownership; Duration; Formalities; Rights and Limitations; Infringement; Secondary Liability; Remedies; and Copyright Protection and Management Systems.

Marbury’s business litigation practice focuses on complex financial transactions and commercial disputes. His intellectual property litigation practice includes patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret litigation. He was first elected to be a member of ALI in 2009.
