Entertainment Law

This course will explore various legal and business issues in the entertainment industries, including those relating to sound recordings, music publishing, literary publishing, films, television, the Internet and other new media. The readings and discussions will also examine the topics of representing talent, drafting and negotiating contracts, remedies for breaches, and rights of publicity. Because the continuing clash of art and commerce requires an entertainment lawyer to understand not only the law, but the art and business of entertainment as well, this course will include an analysis of how the entertainment industries and their economics work.
