This seminar will examine current issues in entertainment law. We will approach entertainment law through a combination of materials that may include statutory and case law; pending legal disputes and current events; problems and hypotheticals; sample transactional documents; and research projects. Topics will include some or all of the following: rights of publicity, trademark, copyright, misappropriation of ideas, life rights, privacy rights, defamation, advertising and endorsement, constitutional issues, representation, insurance, labor and employment, and contracts. As we discuss individual doctrines in the context of entertainment law, we will consider how the doctrines relate to one another and how industry norms shape practices and outcomes. The industries we will consider include motion pictures, television, music, radio, theater/dance, publishing, advertising, video-games, apps, and other interactive digital media.
