Entertainment Law Practice

 
The entertainment law practice of the Law Office of Jeffrey Campolongo is devoted to representing aspiring and established entertainers in the media and entertainment industry. While, the first and foremost function of an entertainment lawyer is to protect the client in a traditional legal setting, true entertainment lawyers also may act as promoters, managers, agents, marketers and counselors for a specific client, depending upon the client's particular circumstances and needs. 

Intellectual property law, including copyright, trademark and celebrity endorsements, licensing and merchandising in the entertainment industry involves, among other things, assisting clients in the selection, searching and registration of trademarks and service marks, both within the United States and abroad. 

Entertainment law, like employment law, often involves an existing relationship or agreement for hire where an individual with a skill is performing a service, for a fee, for someone who needs that individual’s services. A lawyer with a thorough understanding of the inter-personal issues inherent in a working relationship is crucial to negotiating a lucrative entertainment contract.

Some of the multitude of entertainment law issues our office routine confronts include:

  • Music: talent agreements (musicians, composers), producer agreements, and synchronization rights, music industry negotiation and general intellectual property issues, especially relating to copyright
  • Film: covering option agreements, finance, chain of title issues, talent agreements (screenwriters, film directors, actors, composers, production designers), production and post production and trade union issues, distribution issues, motion picture industry negotiations distribution, and general intellectual property issues especially relating to copyright and, to a lesser extent, trademarks
  • Multimedia:  software licensing issues, video game development and production, Information technology law, and general intellectual property issues
  • Publishing: print media issues, including advertising, models, author agreements and general intellectual property issues, especially relating to copyright
  • Television and Radio: broadcast licensing and regulatory issues, mechanical licenses, and general intellectual property issues, especially relating to copyright
  • Theatre: rental agreements and co-production agreements, and other performance oriented legal issues
  • Visual Arts and Design: fine arts, issues of consignment of artworks to art dealers, moral rights of sculptors regarding works in public places; and industrial design, issues related to the protection of graphic design elements in products
  • Defamation: (libel and slander), personality rights and privacy rights issues also arise in entertainment law
