    Being the In-House Counsel of The New Yorker featuring Fabio Bertoni (Ep. 65)

    Being the In-House Counsel of The New Yorker featuring Fabio Bertoni (Ep. 65)

    On this week’s episode, we talk to Fabio Bertoni, the General Counsel for the New Yorker Magazine. We discuss moving from a big law firm to becoming an in-house counsel of a major publication, the process of pre-publication review, and the current media landscape and how it has changed a lawyer’s duty to the publication.



    Fabio Bertoni is general counsel of The New Yorker magazine, where he is responsible for pre-publication review of all articles, website posts, videos and other content published by The New Yorker, as well as supervising legal issues surrounding The New Yorker Festival and other events.  Prior to working at The New Yorker, Fabio was assistant general counsel at HarperCollins Publishers, where he conducted pre-publication review of non-fiction books, and handled legal issues for the Children’s Division, negotiated author-publisher agreements, and advised on licensing, copyright and trademark issues.  Prior to that, Fabio was vice president and deputy general counsel for ALM Media, publisher of The American Lawyer, the New York Law Journal, and dozens of other newspapers and magazines across the United States.



    Fabio also serves as an adjunct professor at Fordham Law School, where he teaches a seminar on Media Law Drafting.  He began his legal career at the firm of Hughes Hubbard & Reed, after graduating from Columbia Law School and from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

    Dance Dance Legal Revolution (Ep. 64)

    Dance Dance Legal Revolution (Ep. 64)

    On this week's episode, we bring you our IPLJ's event held earlier this month, Dance Dance Legal Revolution. Moderated by IPLJ Associate Editor, Kara Krakower, the panel will discuss the popular video game Fortnite, created by Epic Games, which has recently found itself in hot water for selling content that mirrors dance moves made famous by other artists. Some of those artists, such as Brooklyn rapper 2 Milly and star of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Alfonso Ribeiro, have gone as far as to bring suit against Epic Games for the appropriation of their art, image, and brand. The attorneys of Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP, will be joining us for a discussion about the lawsuits, its cultural implications, and the attorneys’ experience working at a young, up-and-coming law firm.
