Peter Afrasiabi and John Tehranian Named to Variety’s 2013 Legal Impact Report Feature On the Top 50 Entertainment Lawyers
Founding partners Peter Afrasiabi and John Tehranian, were recognized in Variety’s 2013 Legal Impact Report, which profiles the world’s top 50 entertainment lawyers. Variety’s 2013 Legal Impact Report featured Peter and John, along with other noted attorneys from O’Melveny & Myers, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Munger Tolles & Olson, Kirkland & Ellis, and Loeb & Loeb, in its list of the top litigators in the business.
Variety highlighted Peter and John’s victory in Mavrix Photo, Inc. v. Brand Technologies, Inc., 647 F.3d 1218 (9th Cir. 2011), cert. denied, 132 S. Ct. 1101 (2012), which resulted in a widely watched and precedent-setting decision for the entertainment industry that has substantially increased the ability of content owners to bring suit in their home jurisdiction when infringers exploit copyrighted works online before a national audience. In the past year, at least 86 federal court decisions have cited to the case, which earned an extensive recent write-up in the Harvard Law Review.
