    The sheer volume of money involved in the entertainment industry categorizes it as big business and it is getting bigger all over the globe. As sophisticated technologies and formats emerge, world-wide audiences and revenues grow exponentially. Creative clients look to the entertainment lawyer to protect their intellectual property rights while they try to convert creative thoughts and ideas into commercial income. Entertainment law has been rapidly evolving to accommodate the ever-changing world of the digital era. With change, however, comes complexity. For the general practitioner to develop a client base in this area, he or she must be grounded in several areas including contracts, copyrights, trademarks, federal and state statutes, and the customs and practices of the entertainment industry.

    Entertainment Law for the General Practitioner discusses the law which governs the entertainment industry and provides a solid base of understanding in the following areas:

    • Copyright law
    • Trademarks
    • Music publishing and royalties
    • Live performances
    • Online entertainment
    • Client consultation
    • And much more
