Emory International Law Review

A popular film favorite among lawyers and law students is the 1992 Oscar-winning comedy, My Cousin Vinny. The film features Joe Pesci as a quick-witted but hapless attorney defending two innocent New York teens from a capital murder charge in the Deep South. It was fitting, then, that a film about law and justice would be used as a guinea pig in Hollywood's most aggressive attempt to enforce its copyrights against unauthorized Bollywood remakes of Hollywood movies.
