Entertainment Law Drafting

This transactional drafting course covers documents in traditional entertainment law (print publishing, television, film and theatre).  The assignments will include rights agreements, releases, licenses and agreements with directors, actors and other talent.  There will be some discussion of financing and distribution agreements but this will not be the main focus of the course.  Among the issues to be discussed will be questions of copyright, ownership and creative license.  The course is designed to give students an opportunity to discuss practical, real-life situations and draft appropriate documentation from differing perspectives. Through written assignments and in-class drafting and negotiating exercises, students will be introduced to some of the basic issues in transactional entertainment law drafting.
