Our attorneys help clients with a wide variety of copyright, publishing and entertainment law, including publishing agreements, content development agreements and licenses, copyright registration and enforcement, rights clearance and regulatory compliance.

We've negotiated, reviewed and drafted a multitude of agreements in the publishing and entertainment industries, including publishing contracts for traditional print books, digital works, websites and works distributed online. In addition, we've worked on agreements and licenses for the creation and distribution of a wide variety of other media, including television programs, films, videos and music. Our attorneys have negotiated agreements on behalf of our clients with major firms in the entertainment industry and some of the largest publishing companies in the United States and internationally.

Our attorneys routinely advise clients on a multitude of copyright issues, from rights clearance to "fair use" of copyrighted materials to the challenges of protecting their rights on the Internet. We have vetted client content for all third-party rights issues, including defamation, rights of publicity and privacy, and trademark and copyright issues. We also help our clients secure any permissions they might need for their publications and productions, including copyright permissions and publicity releases. Protecting our clients' rights through copyright registration and enforcement is always a main goal.

In an effort to provide resources to students regarding intellectual property law, we assisted in the development and implementation of a comprehensive copyright education and compliance program for a local technical college. We continue to participate in the ongoing education of the students and staff regarding acceptable use of copyrighted materials in an educational setting. We're also helping many clients comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and stay current on issues affecting education and copyright.
