Chicago Senior Counsel Scott Hodes was quoted in the November edition of The Art Newspaper concerning expert testimony in fair-use cases. When high-profile photographers are sued for copyright infringement, they often turn to museum directors as subject matter experts paid for their testimony. While the practice is not uncommon, Hodes cautioned that a museum director’s appearance as a paid expert might lead to a backlash in the art world, and that museums could end up adopting formal policies against it.
