SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2018 — The Daily Journal has named King & Spalding partner Kenneth Steinthal to its 2018 list of the Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California, which was published yesterday.
In a profile that accompanied the list, the publication noted that Steinthal’s work was “carving out new legal territory in the area of Internet streaming and IP law.” Steinthal was also named to the list in 2015.
Steinthal specializes in litigating matters in the intellectual property/media sector. His practice is focused on copyright, DMCA and antitrust/rate-setting cases involving the distribution of audio and audiovisual content, and includes counseling companies regarding the licensing implications of their product offerings.
In the last three years, Steinthal has led teams on behalf of Google, the Radio Music License Committee (representing the interests of the U.S. broadcast radio industry), NPR and Pandora before different courts and tribunals (including the U.S. Copyright Royalty Board) to establish rate structures governing his clients’ exploitation of music licensed by music publishers and labels (and their representative organizations). Steinthal has been recognized for his leadership and expertise, including by National Law Journal, as one of its IP Trailblazers, and by Law360, as a Media & Entertainment MVP.
