This course examines the legal and business issues that have arisen in the media and entertainment industries ?film, television, music, sports, and video games ? arising from rapid improvements in technology that have, in turn, led to significant shifts in the way entertainment and media is produced, distributed, and consumed. Students will be exposed to the business and legal implications of the transition from traditional intermediary - driven distribution models to direct-to-consumer streaming offerings, strategic considerations surrounding expansions into ancillary businesses such as sports and video games, and the importance (and challenges of) protecting intellectual property in an era of content ubiquity.
