What is Entertainment Law?

Find the right Entertainment attorney in Bonita Springs, FL

Entertainment Law refers to services, such as copyrights and contracts, that deal particularly with entertainment, like movies, books and films. Working in the entertainment industry, you will want to safeguard your work from being exploited or plagiarized. To safeguard the intellectual property rights of artists, copyright and trademark laws are available to those working in Florida.

What is A Copyright?

A party holding a copyright can exclusively produce a given form of entertainment, requiring any others who want to use it to get consent first. When a copyright holder gives consent for others to use the protected material, it is called a license. A copyright holder in Florida also has the exclusive privilege of selling all licenses for the price it chooses. 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.

What is a Trademark?

Commercial brands sometimes choose visible characteristics or symbols that are intended to be linked with their products. These symbols are called trademarks. They can go a long way in the entertainment industry to help buyers better recognize your products. Although they do not expire, trademarks must be obtained through registering with the U.S. patent and trademark office. With your trademark, buyers will begin to recognize your product more easily.
