Get tips on how to balance your clients’ varied and conflicting needs, such as publicity vs. privacy rights, honoring a contract vs. freedom of creativity and copyright protection vs. artistic license. Master the critical details you need to look for when drawing, reviewing and negotiating contracts, and licensing rights. Discover what you need to know about intellectual property assets, established and emerging media, financing, labor requirements, conflicting state regulations and more.

Topics to include:

• Music Law and Practice: A brief survey (with commentary) of the seminal elements which comprise a typical Recording Agreement and a typical Music Publishing Agreement presented by attorneys who have counseled an eclectic group of artists and managers of artists, who have collectively sold more than 250 million albums.  

• Motorsports- Business and Legal Issues: This program will address important issues in Motorsports from contracts, intellectual property, sponsorships and other issues.  The presenters will also discuss how work in Motorsports can result in cross-selling opportunities to numerous practice areas.  Fasten your seat-belt!

• Television - The Reality of Reality Television Competition Programs: Your longtime client’s daughter has been offered a chance to audition for a national reality TV competition show – and they want you to review the contract the show’s producer has just presented to them; 50 pages of fine print, waivers, indemnities and a very broad grant of rights. You’ve read plenty of contracts in your time, but you have no experience in entertainment law, nor are you familiar with the industry standards for this type of deal. What to do?

• Fashion Law An Overview: This presentation will cover the initial steps a fashion company needs to take in order to protect its brand and overall business venture, and how business incorporations, trademarks, copyrights and contracts are applied within this industry.

• Documentary: A discussion and review of the legal agreements and business issues in the making of “It Was the Music”, a documentary feature film. Produced by an award-wining filmmaker, a documentary about Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, two famous back-up musical artists, who step into the limelight to make it on their own, pack their bags and thirty-year marriage into their SUV and set out across America to sing their own songs, with concert footage of David Bromberg, Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, Tracy Nelson, and others

• Joke Theft and the Law: Learn why it’s rarely easy to prove joke theft in the legal world – is it copyright-infringement, plagiarism or a “parallel creation” when comics to come up with similar ideas entirely separately inspired by the same topical event?
