What is Entertainment Law?

Find the right Entertainment attorney in Boulder City, NV

Entertainment law is a branch of law concerned specifically with the property issues that surround pieces of entertainment like books, movies and visual arts. Working in the entertainment industry, you will want to protect your work from being exploited or plagiarized. To protect the intellectual property rights of artists, copyright and trademark laws are available to those working in Nevada.

What is A Copyright?

A party holding a copyright can exclusively produce a certain 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 Nevada 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?

Commercial brands sometimes choose visible characteristics or symbols that are intended to be associated 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. 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.

Life in Boulder City

Boulder City is a Clark County municipality that is about 20 miles outside of Las Vegas and home to 15,000 residents. Originally constructed as housing for Hoover Dam workers, Boulder City was founded in 1932. To keep workers focused on their work the city prohibited alcohol sales, gambling, and membership in unions. It is one of only two cities in Nevada today that still prohibits gambling and is notoriously known as a speed trap for people passing through to Las Vegas. Unsurprisingly, there are a number of very experienced lawyers in the area. Boulder City lawyers don't only do traffic cases but are actually experienced in many areas of law and practice in many different counties throughout Nevada.  

Money Magazine voted Boulder City the 6th best place to retire in the United States because it has affordable housing, medical care, tax rates, and a great arts and culture life. Boulder City has a total of 202.7 square miles making it the largest city in the State of Nevada.
