Entertainment Law refers to services, such as copyrights and contracts, that deal particularly with entertainment, like movies, books and films. Protecting work from being plagiarized or otherwise exploited is a massive concern for those working in the entertainment industries. Copyright and trademark laws safeguard artists in Alaska, and are among a body of laws that defines the intellectual property rights of those working in the entertainment field.

A copyright is the legal right to exclusively produce a given medium, such as art, movies and writing. Others are prevented from using or reproducing your copyrighted materials without your consent. Under Alaska law, the holder of a copyright has the right to negotiate licenses for the production of the copyrighted material that others may want to use. Entertainment law determines the process for getting a copyright and how long it lasts once issued. These concerns are important as you go about protecting your property rights or licensing your work to others.
