Kibler Fowler & Cave Team Secures Settlement in Harambe Photo Copyright Suit

Kibler Fowler & Cave’s Entertainment and Intellectual Property Litigation practice group represented photographer Jeff McCurry in a copyright dispute with Barstool Sports over Mr. McCurry’s photographs of the late gorilla Harambe, who became an internet sensation after he was shot and killed by officials because a young boy had fallen into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. Shortly after KF&C filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the parties reached a confidential settlement agreement.

The KF&C team includes Partner Matt Cave and Senior Associate Kevin Kroll.
