Sony Music VS Coub.com administrator


The major music label sought Semenov & Pevzner’s help in its dispute with the video service Coub.Com. The proceedings went into several stages and took almost a year and a half to complete: the court of first instance sided with the claimant in August 2017, and Coub.Com’s subsequent appeal was unsuccessful. It was not long before Coub.Com would repeat the infringement – in the summer of 2018 Semenov & Pevzner secured a permanent blocking order against the video service, which prompted a new start of negotiations and, in November 2018, the parties settled.
