SAN FRANCISCO, April 17, 2019 — The Daily Journal has named King & Spalding partner Kenneth Steinthal to its 2019 list of the Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California, which was published today.
In a profile that accompanied the list, the publication noted that in recent years, Steinthal has represented, among other clients, Alphabet Inc.-owned Google, NPR, ESPN, Pandora Media, and the Radio Music License Committee in cutting-edge matters adverse to a number of music licensing organizations. These matters have unfolded in multiple courts and tribunals, “as IP law is applied to new innovations in internet music streaming,” the publication noted.
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. Steinthal was named to the Daily Journal’s Top IP Lawyers in California list in 2018 and 2015 and has also been recognized by National Law Journal as one of its 2016 IP Trailblazers, and by Law360, as one of five 2015 Media & Entertainment MVPs.
