Message From the Chair

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. I am delighted to announce two recent appointments to the EASL Executive Committee.

Judith B. Bass has been appointed as Co-Chair of EASL's Literary Works Committee. Judy is a media and entertainment lawyer with a solo practice who represents a variety of creative artists and producers in film, television, theater, publishing, licensing and the visual arts. She has worked, among other places, as an attorney and business affairs executive at Time Inc., CBS and Marvel Enterprises. An article about her practice entitled "Adding a Personal Touch for Less: Media Dealmaker Thrives Outside the Corporate World" appeared in the February 26, 2007 issue of Crain's New York Business. Her article entitled "Cariou v. Prince: Fair Use or Unfair?" will be published in the Summer 2011 issue of the EASL Journal.

Cheryl Davis has been appointed as Co-Chair of EASL's Diversity Committee. Cheryl is a partner at Menaker & Herrmann LLP, where her practice focuses on intellectual property matters (particularly copyright and trademark cases), employment, and real estate/construction related matters. She is also a published playwright whose work has been frequently read and performed nationally. Her play about the desegregation of the nations' school system, The Color of Justice, which was commissioned by Theatreworks/USA, received critical acclaim and tours regularly. Cheryl is the recipient of a Writers Guild Award for her work on the daytime dramatic serial As The World Turns.  Her musical Barnstormer received a Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation Award and was in developmental production at the Red Mountain Theatre in Birmingham, Alabama in January 2010.

Warm welcome to Judy and Cheryl!
