Saper Law recently assisted Margaret Small, a courtroom sketch artist, negotiate a copyright licensing agreement with Warner Brothers.
For the last 40 years, Margaret has served as a sketch artist for numerous high profile trials, included the recent Michael Jordan v. Dominick’s right of publicity trial. However, it was her work in the trial of notorious Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger that caught the attention of Warner Bros. Studios. Warner Bros. approached Margaret for licensing some of her unique sketches of the Bulger trial for inclusion in a feature-length documentary centered around the capture and trial of the infamous mobster. The documentary is set to be released in conjunction with the non-theatrical release of the film “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp.
