Partner Andrew Baum was quoted in a Law360 article on February 5, 2014 titled “Facebook Faces Not 1, But 2 Challengers Over ‘Paper’ App.” The article discusses how FiftyThree, which created a popular sketch app in 2012 that's also called "Paper," made headlines by demanding the Facebook stop using the name just days after it debuted its new curated news-reader app. Baum was quoted saying, “FiftyThree certainly has a legitimate rights to the name, but it's questionable whether those rights are broad enough to prevent use and registration by Facebook for what seems like a very different service.”
