Entertainment Litigation Comes In Many Forms
Behind the massive, multi-billion dollar entertainment industry in California and Los Angeles in particular, is a web of applicable laws and the frequent litigation they spawn. Entertainment law is a diverse and expanding area of the law. Entertainment law, on a broad level, includes general contracts law and intellectual property law.
A primary source of entertainment litigation is protecting content and ideas from exploitation by other parties. This is why entertainment lawyers rely heavily upon copyright and trademark law to protect their clients' content.
Entertainment disputes (which often turn into lawsuits) arise in a variety of situations, including:
- Breach of contract
- Publishing agreement disputes
- Licensing disputes
- Freedom of speech/First Amendment issues
- Employment matters
- Libel and slander (defamation)
- Profit participation
- Trademark and copyright infringement
