TJSL students working on music copyright case

Three Thomas Jefferson School of Law students are working as interns with the legal team representing legendary funk musician George Clinton. The copyrights of Clintonís and many other 1970s artists' songs begin to expire in 2013, and a pitched-battle is underway for the artists to win the copyrights to their own songs back from the record companies.

The interns are Jillian Kates, Pauline Isidro and Jeff Berneking , who are all fellows in TJSLís Intellectual Property Fellowship Program.

The chain of events that led to the association between Clinton and the law school began at a conference TJSL hosted in November 2012, "Music Copyright Terminations: The Ticking Time Bomb Has Arrived," which featured top entertainment law attorneys, many of them TJSL alumni.
