Conservative Activist Klayman Sues Bakerhostetler
Apr 3 15
A conservative watchdog who made his name suing the Clintons during the 1990s has filed suit against BakerHostetler alleging malpractice while representing his ex-wife in a custody battle. Larry Klayman, the founder of activist groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, claims attorneys at BakerHostetler violated federal racketeering laws and intruded into his private affairs when they issued subpoenas to PayPal and obtained information about his personal finances. He also claims the attorneys and his wife, Stephanie DeLuca of University Heights, falsely accused him of criminal conduct that was never substantiated. The lawsuit was filed March 6 in federal court in West Palm Beach, Florida. It is at least the fifth that Klayman has pursued following a decision five years ago by Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Magistrate Judge Lawrence Loeb to deny Klayman custody of his children, now 15 and 17 years old. BakerHostetler has been named in two other suits, and both were dismissed. Klayman's lawsuit names as defendants DeLuca; attorneys Suzanne Jambe, Jamie Rollinson and Hewitt Shaw; and the law firm. Klayman also alleges fraud, instruction into his private affairs and conversion. He is asking for at least $6.5 million in damages, plus attorney's fees.
BakerHostetler Responds to Copyright Infringement Complaints Filed Against Freeplay Music
Mar 3 15
BakerHostetler filed answers and counterclaims in the United States District Court for the Central District of California responding to Machinima, Inc. and Collective Digital Studios, LLC (CDS). The filings allege that Machinima and CDS have exploited hundreds of copyrights owned and/or controlled by Freeplay Music, LLC. The filings, prepared by BakerHostetler attorneys Oren Warshavsky, Robert Welsh and Tatiana Markel, allege that both Machinima and CDS were aware that they were using Freeplay's music without authorization. Freeplay Music's filings explain that Freeplay's agents and Freeplay itself alerted Machinima and CDS that each was exploiting Freeplay's copyrights without authorization. The filings also explain that beginning in 2014, when YouTube required Machinima and CDS to ensure copyright compliance, both eschewed their obligations to do so with respect to Freeplay's copyrights. Freeplay Music, a music publisher since 2001, administers a catalogue of tens of thousands of songs, 15,000 of which are available for download on its website. Freeplay's music is easy to use properly. Freeplay Music has issued over 1.8 million licenses and there are over 425,000 authorized uses of its copyrighted music on YouTube. As detailed in the court filings, Freeplay engaged a related but independent company, TuneSat, LLC, which has the premier music identification technology. TuneSat represents thousands of copyright owners and has a database of over 50 million different musical works. TuneSat identified hundreds of unauthorized uses. Machinima is accused of exploiting over 80 Freeplay copyrights, of which there are over 500 unauthorized uses. CDS is accused of exploiting over 40 Freeplay copyrights, of which there are more than 60 unauthorized uses.
