Join California Lawyers for the Arts for a special lecture with Professor Kevin J. Greene in which we will explore and unpack the question of intellectual property at the intersection of race and law. 

Professor Greene’s scholarship in the areas of copyright, trademark and publicity rights has garnered national and international recognition in the intellectual property (“IP”) arena, particularly his pioneering work on African-American music and copyright law. His scholarship has twice been selected as among the best IP law review articles, in 2008 for a right of publicity article and in 2015 for an article on idea misappropriation in Hollywood.

A graduate of the Yale Law School and a veteran of the United States Marines, Professor Kevin J. Greene is a Visiting Professor at California Western School of Law. Before becoming a law professor, Greene practiced law in New York at the premier firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, where he represented high profile companies such as Time Warner and HBO.

He also worked at New York’s top entertainment law boutique firm, where he represented clients including film production companies and record labels, including Director Spike Lee, Def Jam Records, and iconic music artists Harry Connick, Jr., Bobby Brown and the seminal rap group Public Enemy.
