Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. v. Video Marc Dorcel
Working with French counsel, we successfully represented Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. in reaffirming its continuing copyright rights in the original 1912 Tarzan story "Tarzan of the Apes" TARZAN character in Berne member countries and in obtaining a permanent injunction and substantial damages in a copyright infringement action against an unauthorized video based on the TARZAN character. Favorable decisions were obtained in the Tribunal de Grande Instance and Cour D'Appel.
