the Daily Journal as one of California’s “Top Intellectual Property
Litigators.” This is the fourth year Moss has been recognized by the legal
publisher and included in its annual ranking of leading IP litigators in the
state. Moss focuses on entertainment industry IP matters and protecting the

other creative content.
“The IP powerhouse counsel that Aaron provides our clients in litigation
challenges has propelled the Firm’s prominence in intellectual property law,”
said Greenberg Glusker Managing Partner Stephen Smith. “Kudos to Aaron for
this deserved recognition.”
Among the clients Moss currently represents are Classic Media, LLC, which in
2012 was acquired by DreamWorks Animation, video game publisher Ubisoft
Entertainment, actor Tom Cruise and Toho Co., Ltd., the owner of the IP rights
Recent IP matters for Moss include:
*Ongoing representation of Costco in a major case of first impression,
including before the U.S. Supreme Court. The case is back up before the
Ninth Circuit on Omega’s appeal from the judgment in favor of Costco
entered by the district court. In 2012, the court awarded attorneys’ fees
in favor of Costco, which has also been appealed. Oral arguments are
expected in 2013.
*Representing Tom Cruise in a high- profile defamation action against the

actor’s relationship with his daughter Suri.
*Defended Ubisoft Entertainment, S.A. against copyright infringement claims
brought by author John Beiswenger alleging that “Assassin’s Creed” video
game series infringed the author’s novel Link. Beiswenger eventually
dismissed his case at the pleading stage.
Moss is the co-author of a law review article published in 2012 by the Harvard
Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law entitled, “Copyright Termination and
Loan-Out Corporations: Reconciling Practice and Policy.” He has also served as
an expert witness on copyright matters pending in both the United States and
abroad, and is a lecturer and media commentator on copyright-related issues.
Moss has been included on the “Southern California Super Lawyers” list of
distinguished attorneys since 2004. Moss earned his bachelor’s degree, summa
cum laude, from University of California, Los Angeles and graduated magna cum
laude from Harvard Law School.
