Chris works as an expert witness and intellectual property consultant for the music industry. He spearheaded the successful effort in the late 1990s by musical instrument manufacturer Roland Corporation to gain copyright protection for its instrument sample library as sound recordings (Roland v. Atmel). Chris has since provided detailed sound analysis for record labels in individual sound sampling cases, as well as larger cases involving mix tapes (UMG v. BCD) and ringtones (Arista et al v. Myxer et al). Crish Design can also offer graphic services to prepare charts and other exhibits for trial.
