Our Litigator of the Week this week is Benjamin Marks, who heads the intellectual property & media practice at Weil, Gotshal & Manges. Marks this week convinced the Second Circuit to uphold his summary judgment win for client Getty Images in a case where the company was facing potential statutory damages of $3 billion on claims that it had intentionally altered the photographer credit information for more than 47,000 photographs allegedly belonging to Zuma Press.

The lawsuit pitted Marks and his team against plaintiffs’ counsel, Richard Liebowitz, who has filed more than 1,200 copyright infringement suits over the past three years alone.
