S&B was honored to have the opportunity of representing Gary Portnoy, the co-writer and performer of the theme song from "Cheers (Where Everybody Knows Your Name)" in an action for false advertising. Handling attorney Eric Schiffer explained "unfortunately, a licensee of his song used a ‘sound-alike’ version of his performance in conjunction with the sale of a product which played the theme song and specifically touted the fact that it was Mr. Portnoy's performance, when it was not. Federal false advertising laws protect performers such as Mr. Portnoy." S&B helped Mr. Portnoy achieve a favorable resolution, and more importantly, helped maintain the integrity of this iconic song.
