Christine Lepera Quoted in Billboard
Christine Lepera was quoted in the article, "Adele Fans Still Fighting For Her Attention After Pulling Their Unauthorized Book Based On Lyrics," published by Billboard on October 26, 2017. "Every artist and songwriter has the right to protect her intellectual property from unauthorized use," says Christine Lepera, co-chair of the IP/Entertainment Litigation Group of Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP, adding that decisions regarding the use of lyrics -- often co-owned by music publishers and other writers -- may not be up to the artist. "Contractual arrangements may also prevent a writer or artist from unilaterally approving certain uses of their lyrics or music, regardless of whether or not the proposed use is not monetized or whether it is simply a sign of fan love."
