Entertainment Law

Entertainment law regulates all aspects of the entertainment industry, specifically relationships and transactions between individuals and organizations involved in film, theatre, television, radio, music, dance, writing, fine arts and sports. It includes regulation of the media, both in print and in telecommunications, as well as on the internet and in various evolving forms of technology. Entertainment law attempts to insure fairness in all aspects of selling or transferring creative works for profit.

Entertainment lawyers represent not only artists and athletes, but talent agents, production companies and related organizations. Entertainment law regularly deals not only with the negotiation of contracts and the resolution of contract disputes, but privacy and publicity rights, defamation matters, estate planning, taxation strategies and intellectual property issues.
