What is Entertainment Law?

Find the right Entertainment attorney in Winter Garden, FL

Entertainment Law refers to services, such as copyrights and contracts, that deal specifically with entertainment, like movies, books and films. Working in the entertainment industry, you will want to protect your work from being exploited or plagiarized. Copyright and trademark laws protect artists in Florida, and are among a body of laws that defines the intellectual property rights of those working in the entertainment field.

What is A Copyright?

A copyright for a specific 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. 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 any licenses for the price it chooses. The procedure for getting a copyright and how long it lasts once issued are governed by entertainment law. Aside from protecting your property rights, getting a copyright will allow you to sell licenses to others.

What is a Trademark?

A symbol or other notable visual characteristic that people associate with a brand is a trademark. Visual cues are key in the entertainment industry to establish product recognition. A trademark must be registered with the U.S. patent and trademark office, and it does not expire. With a trademark, a company may begin to establish brand identity.
