Dan Nabel currently practices law in-house at Riot Games. He teaches “Video Game Law” at the USC Gould School of Law and co-authored Video Game Law in a Nutshell (West Academic, 2018). Nabel began his career as a litigator at Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger, LLP in Century City. While in private practice, Nabel successfully litigated dozens of cases and counseled clients on a wide range of topics, including real estate, business and intellectual property. He also published more than 50 articles in the Daily Journal and other trade publications.

Prior to joining Riot Games, Nabel directed the Intellectual Property & Technology Law Clinic at USC Gould. While directing the clinic, he supervised law students in public interest cases as they counseled and represented policymakers, artists, film-makers, innovators, game-makers, non-profit organizations and others on a range of intellectual property and technology issues. Under Nabel’s direction, the clinic successfully obtained the first-ever Digital Millennium Copyright Act exemption for the repair of agricultural machinery, as part of the U.S. Copyright Office’s triennial Section 1201 rule-making proceeding.

Nabel serves as a Trustee for the Los Angeles Copyright Society and has a strong commitment to public interest work. He has provided pro bono legal services to numerous clients of the Alliance for Children’s Rights and Public Counsel in adoption, immigration, fraud and elder abuse cases. Nabel also serves as chair of the advisory council for CASA of Los Angeles — an organization dedicated to improving the lives of neglected and abused foster children with trained volunteer advocates.

Re: Franita Tolson

Franita Tolson was interviewed about Republicans' success in blocking voter rights legislation. "A lot of states have voter I.D. laws, but it's important to distinguish between types of voter I.D. laws to the extent that a state has a restrictive one," she said. "But what we saw in the wake of the Shelby County decision was states enacted more restrictive voter IDs, voter I.D. laws because they don't have to preclear with the federal government."
