Partner Miles Cooley was interviewed by Billboard Brasil discussing his work with some of Hollywood’s biggest icons. Miles specializes in defending music stars and athletes, and among his impressive results is the recovery of Jay-Z’s 50 stolen recordings, valued at more than $30 million.
During the interview, Miles was also asked about his experience defending cases involving intellectual property. “Fundamentally, my job is to defend art and artists, and much about legal rights related to art can be philosophical. But even so, I believe that intellectual property can be presented as quite tangible - for example, people intuitively understand that artists should be the owners of the songs they write and if others use those songs without permission that is unfair,” said Miles.
