As the author of the thrice-annual revisions to Nimmer on Copyright, David Nimmer has found his words quoted in some 3,500 judicial opinions. The United States Supreme Court has cited Nimmer on Copyright on numerous occasions, as has every federal appellate court, countless district and state courts, and indeed courts confronting copyright cases in countries across the planet. He has taught copyright at UCLA Law School for years and more recently as well at Cardozo Law School, University of Miami Law School, and other venues. But, since 1987, he has made his primary professional home at the law firm of Irell & Manella LLP, where he has represented clients in the entertainment, publishing, and high-technology fields.
