Jeannette Carmadella Quoted in Bloomberg Law About Fair Use in Musical Productions

Jeannette Carmadella was quoted in an excellent article, ‘Bridgerton’ Musical, Church’s ‘Hamilton’: IP Fair Use Explained, by Kelcee Griffis, a reporter for Bloomberg Law. Jeannette explained why the two productions — an unauthorized musical production inspired by the Netflix TV series “Bridgerton” and a Texas church’s performance of the Broadway show “Hamilton” — both go beyond the limits of what is permissible under the fair use doctrine. In discussing what constitutes a “transformative” use for the purposes of the fair use defense, the article references the Andy Warhol Foundation case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, a case which Lutzker & Lutzker is following closely.
