Peter Afrasiabi wins in major copyright decision in Ninth Circuit

One LLP today prevailed on behalf of its client Mavrix Photo, Inc. in a major Ninth Circuit precedent setting copyright decision involving personal jurisdiction over modern websites and internet-based businesses.  Mavrix Photo’s copyright infringement lawsuit involves claims around  numerous Mavrix photographs of pop superstar Fergie.  ”This is a fantastic victory for our client.  The Court’s decision today is the first appellate decision we are aware of that has addressed the applicability of personal jurisdictional principles to modern internet businesses that are built around an ad revenue model,” said Peter Afrasiabi who argued the case last October for Mavrix.
