As an entertainment attorney, I negotiate and draft personal service contracts in the entertainment industry. Representing musicians, producers, actors, artists, managers, production companies and writers brings something new everyday. I solve problems for my clients and that is sometimes the best part. Since I am a musician and producer myself, I can relate to many of those challenges. And for those that like definitions:
Entertainment Law includes the areas of law governing professionals and businesses in the entertainment industry, related agreements and of course, intellectual property such as copyrights and trademarks.
The entertainment industry includes the fields of theater, film, fine art, dance, opera, music, literary publishing, digital media, television, and radio and of course, the Internet. These fields share a common mission of selling or otherwise profiting from creative works or services provided by writers, songwriters, musicians, and other artists.
