Can a Fictional Character Defame You?
Using a recent legal demand over CBS' "The Good Fight" as a jumping-off point, this session will explore the various ways that real people can find their way into literature and entertainment content and the plausibility of libel claims when those fictional appearances aren't to their liking. Featuring: Jonathan Anschell, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, ViacomCBS Media Networks; Ron Charles, Book critic for the Washington Post and host of the "Totally Hip Video Book Review"; Michelle & Robert King, Writers Guild of America Award-winning creators of "The Good Wife," "The Good Fight," and other TV series; Elizabeth A. McNamara, Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
