My guest today is Jeff Kravitz who represents clients in the entertainment industry, including production companies, studios and individuals with their litigation needs, particularly concerning copyright infringement, invasion of privacy, contract, sexual harassment and he provides business counseling related to their intellectual property.
Jeff was named as one of the leading intellectual property, trademark, copyright and trade secrets attorneys in California by Chambers USA. Has a number of celebrity accounts including Smokey Robinson, Seal, George Lopez, Kobe Bryant GwenStefani and a whole heap more.
Having said all that, today I want to speak about a subject that is beginning to get huge traction and rightly so. Equal pay for equal work. On October 6, last year, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a Senate Bill 358, which took effect about 3 weeks ago. It strengthens California’s existing equal pay laws dating back to 1949
