Attorney specializing in music, entertainment, and intellectual property
Gregory Gabriel is an Associate at Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert (KWIKA) and focuses primarily on music, entertainment, and intellectual property litigation with extensive experience in copyright, trademark, right of publicity issues and contract issues. His intimate understanding of the law in this area has resulted in efficient victories for our clients. Mr. Gabriel recently assisted in the defense of Sanctuary Records against a multitude of claims by Mike Love from the Beach Boys in two separate lawsuits. Mr. Love's complaints included claims for conspiracy, right of publicity violations, as well as trademark and copyright infringement among other things. Mr. Gabriel helped obtain a dismissal of every one Mr. Love's claims by motion, which resulted in a published opinion: Mike Love v. The Mail on Sunday, 473 F.Supp.2d 1052 (C.D.Cal. 2007). In addition, Mr. Gabriel helped obtain an attorneys' fee award in favor of Sanctuary in both cases.
