Whether you’re an attorney for Taylor Swift, Beyoncé or Zayn Malik, or if you’re dealing with any kind of celebrity for that matter, you’ll likely be dealing with hacked phones and iCloud accounts. It doesn’t matter if the nude photos from hacked phones actually exist or are photoshopped-body-swaps. What does matter is what you’ll advise your celebrity client.

On Monday, February 9, 2015, from 1 to 3 p.m the New York Bar Association will be presenting a panel program called, “The TMZ Effect: Legal Repercussions When Celebrity Photos Leak.”

The event will be held at New York Hilton Midtown,
1335 Avenue of the Americas at West 53rd Street
Murray Hill Room – 2nd Floor.

Panelists planned are Frederick P. Bimbler of Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP (New York City), Robert A. Boland, New York University and moderator Jason Aylesworth of Sendroff & Baruch, LLP (New York City)

The topic is in response to the spate of celebrities who have seen their private photographs, text messages and emails exposed for public consumption by gossip sites and media outlets like TMZ. It will ask the question: What are the repercussions for athletes and celebrities throughout the entertainment and sports industry, and how should attorneys advise their clients when personal matters jeopardize their professional careers?

Sports Licensing Panel:
If you’re up for a double feature, later that day, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the Bar Association will also present the topic “Athletes, Attorneys and the NFL:

New Trends in Pro Sports Licensing.” Panelists will include: Christopher R. Chase of  Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, PC (New York City); Alan S. Hock of Moritt Hock & Manroff LLP (Garden City, N.Y.); Hrishi Karthikeyan, vice president, Legal and Business Affairs of the National Basketball Association and Sean C. Sansiveri, Legal Counsel for the National Football League Players Association. It will be moderated by Britton Payne of Fordham University School of Law.

The panel will explore the implications of new licensing trends among professional athletes, teams and leagues including several new developments in the NFL.
The panels are sponsored by the Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section of the State Bar Association and RSVP is required.
