Fox News Network, LLC v. TV Eyes, Inc.

Speaker: Dale Cendali, Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Dale Cendali, Kirkland & Ellis LLP


Please join us for a fascinating discussion about the future of fair use with Kirkland & Ellis partner Dale Cendali. Dale recently won a sweeping victory for her client Fox News in Fox News Network, LLC v. TVEyes, Inc., when the Second Circuit held on appeal on February 27, 2018 that TVEyes’ use of Fox News’ video clips was not a fair use.


Dale Cendali is a nationally recognized leader in the field of intellectual property litigation, having successfully litigated and tried numerous high-profile cases, and having argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Her practice encompasses copyright, trademark, false advertising, patent, Internet, and trade secrets law, as well as defamation, the right of publicity, privacy, and complex contract disputes. Dale heads the Copyright, Trademark, Internet and Advertising practice group at Kirkland & Ellis LLP.


The National Law Journal selected her as one of the “100 Most Influential Lawyers in America.” Law360 named Dale one of the 25 “Icons of IP,” who have “made an indelible mark in the IP area,” as well as a “Media and Entertainment MVP.” She was also named on the Hollywood Reporter’s “Power Lawyers 2018: Hollywood’s Top 100 Attorneys.” Dale has repeatedly been ranked as a “top tier” lawyer by Chambers Global and Chambers USA, which describes her as “one of the best lawyers in the country” in her field. In 2018, Dale was recognized as “Litigator of the Week” by The American Lawyer, for winning two copyright cases on the same day in both the Ninth and Second Circuits. The World Trademark Review named Dale a “revered branding expert” who “remains keenly engaged in the development of the law;” “at the top of anybody’s list of the best trademark lawyers in the country.” Euromoney Legal Media Group has also named Dale as both “Best in Copyright” and “Best in Trademark” in the Americas at its Women in Business Law Awards, and she was named an Outstanding Litigator in New York, as well as one of the Top 10 Women in IP by Managing Intellectual Property. She also has repeatedly been named by Super Lawyers among “The Top 100 New York Lawyers” and “The Top 50 Female New York Lawyers,” and was profiled in the feature story “Truth, Justice and the Cendali Way” in the 2007 New York Metro edition of Super Lawyers Magazine.


She is also a prolific writer and editor, and has long been active in the bar. She co-edited the ABA’s Copyright Litigation Strategies Handbook and was contributing editor of Chambers Global’s Guide to Trade Marks. For over 15 years, she has co-authored the Copyright chapter of West’s volume Successful Partnering Between Inside and Outside Counsel. In 2010, INTA elected Dale to serve as Counsel, the highest-ranking position in the organization for an outside counsel. She has also INTA’s Dilution, Enforcement, and Copyright Committees and is the current chair of INTA’s copyright policy group. Dale has held numerous other leadership positions in the bar, including serving as Vice Chair of the Copyright Division and chair of the IP Special Issues Division for the IP Section of the ABA, as well as on Council for the ABA IP Section. Among other positions, Dale is head of the IP Council of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and is the former Chair of the New York City Bar’s Trademarks and Unfair Competition Committee. In 2015 Dale was selected as an Adviser for The American Law Institute’s project, Restatement of the Law, Copyright.


Dale also has long been an adjunct professor at Harvard Law School, teaching a full-semester class each fall about copyright and trademark litigation.
