The Legal Times has named Wiley Rein LLP Copyright Practice Chair, Bruce G. Joseph, one of the capital region's ten "Leading Intellectual Property Lawyers" in the areas of copyright and trademark law. A profile of Mr. Joseph in the paper highlights an impressive career that includes his central participation in legislative and inter-industry policy debates as well as his involvement in litigating many of the important cases in the field.
Recognizing him as a "leading advocate for corporate copyright users," the paper reports that Mr. Joseph represents a range of corporations and associations - AT&T, the Association of American Universities, CTIA-the Wireless Association, Clear Channel Communications, Philips Electronics, Sirius Satellite Radio and Verizon among them - in connection with copyright litigation; copyright and digital content protection legislation, regulation and inter-industry activities; music and sound recording fee proceedings, and copyright licensing and registration.
Mr. Joseph has been with Wiley Rein since just after its inception in 1983.
Wiley Rein recently hosted more than 40 children during the firm's 2008 "Take Your Child to Work Day."As part of this annual tradition, employees are invited to bring their children, ages 9-17, to experience a day in the office and to participate in an age-appropriate program.
In keeping with the political season, the day's theme was an imaginary presidential campaign (no actual candidates needed to apply). With the involvement of members of the firm's Election Law & Government Ethics Practice, the children learned about the process electing a president - from holding press conferences and creating campaign ads to fundraising and the actual nomination.
