Kimberly Herman was quoted in the article, Copyright sublicense need not be express, 1st Circuit rules," published by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly [sub. req'd] on March 25, 2020.
The article discusses the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' ruling that a copyright licensee given the unrestricted right to grant sublicenses could do so impliedly without using express language. Kim called the ruling good for licensees but not for copyright owners.
