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. Artists have certain intellectual property rights in Alabama, which are safeguarded in part by copyright and trademark laws.

What is A Copyright?

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. The consent of the copyright holder for others to use the protected material is called a license. In Alabama, the copyright holder has the exclusive privilege of negotiating all licenses it issues. The procedure for getting a copyright and how long it lasts once issued are controlled by entertainment law. Aside from protecting your property rights, getting a copyright will allow you to sell licenses to others.
