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 Arkansas, which are safeguarded in part by copyright and trademark laws.

What is A Copyright?

A copyright for a particular piece of entertainment means that a party has the exclusive right to produce it. If others want to use it, they must first get consent from the copyright holder. In order to comply with the entertainment laws in Arkansas, someone seeking to use your copyrighted material must negotiate and get a license or contract from you first. Whether you can get a copyright, the procedure for getting one, and how long it lasts once issued are questions determined by entertainment law. With a copyright, you can protect your property rights for the future, or you can simply start licensing it to others.

What is a Trademark?

A particular commercial brand may have a symbol or other notable visual characteristic to serve as a trademark. In the entertainment industry, they help to create product recognition. Trademarks, unlike copyrights, do not expire. However, they must be registered with the U.S. patent and trademark office. Once you have your trademark, creating brand identity becomes much easier.

How Can a Arkansas Attorney Help?

Deciding whether you need a trademark or copyright is often a decision best made with the advice of an attorney in Forrest City that has experienced in entertainment law. The filing process in Arkansas can also go more smoothly with an attorney to guide you.
