The firm was also named “National Appellate Firm of the Year” and regional “Copyright Firm of the Year” (East), in addition to receiving an Editor’s Choice Award for its role in the milestone case Capitol Records Inc. v.MP3tunes, a precedential copyright infringement case led by Partners Andrew H. Bart and Luke C. Platzer that resulted in a resounding appellate victory for client EMI relating to the application of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to the operations of a pair of online music sites.
