Entertainment Law

To be successful in the entertainment industry, individuals, artists, employees, and companies have to be innovative, committed, daring, and creative. The glitz and glamour the entertainment industry projects to audiences and fans can give the impression that celebrities, artists, talent agents, or major broadcasting companies never have to deal with any legal troubles. However, due to various disputes and unexpected events, this couldn't be further from the truth. Breach of contract, trademark violations, misuse of music or art, copyright infringement, defamation, invasion of privacy, and other issues can present several challenges to an individual or company in the entertainment industry.

Entertainment law, or media law, relates to more legal areas than most people realize. Often, when entertainment law disputes manifest, issues also arise relating to advertising, bankruptcy law, clearance of rights, contract law, defamation, labor law, immigration law, insurance law intellectual property law, International law, product placement, right of privacy, and securities law.

Entertainment Industry Dispute Resolution

Individuals or companies within the entertainment industry often require legal counsel and assistance for transactional matters. In a lot of situations, an entertainment law lawyer will be obtained to help with the facilitation of business deals, contract creation, negotiation strategies, business initiative tactics, and other contractual issues relating to business transactions for production, financing, and talent as well as formation, trademarks, and copyrights.

When disputes present significant challenges to individuals and companies in the entertainment industry, entertainment law attorneys with experience handling litigation will be obtained to effectively resolve the problem in a timely manner. While most people would like to avoid litigation and try to solve an issue in the simplest way possible, depending on the specifics, litigation can sometimes be the most viable option. An individual or company may need an entertainment lawyer when they are required to respond to a lawsuit being filed against them by another party when they need to issue preliminary demands; when they need to initiate legal action if they think another person is violating or has violated their legal or contractual rights; when they need to respond to governmental questioning; or when they need to respond to accusations of violating the law.
