Becker Quoted in Pitchfork Regarding "Stranger Things" Rip-off Lawsuit

Partner Jeffrey S. Becker was quoted in Pitchfork regarding the lawsuit alleging that "Stranger Things" creators Matt and Ross Duffer ripped off the idea for the television show from filmmaker Charlie Kessler.

In the article, "The 'Stranger Things' Rip-Off Lawsuit Could Set a Perilous Precedent," Becker says:

“Kessler has a very steep hill to climb to convince a jury that he shared his ideas with the Duffer brothers under sufficiently clear circumstances,” says Jeff Becker, who heads the entertainment practice at another law firm, Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP.
