Whether you’re a freelancer, small production company or part of a large corporate entity, your media business is effected by independent contractor rules, contracts, copyrights/trademarks/patents, licensing, billing, insurance, business issues and many more areas in which a good lawyer can be a valuable guide--not to mention a defender and champion of your interests. Our January meeting presents one of So Cal’s top entertainment attorneys, David P. Branfman of the Branfman Law Group who will answer your entertainment and business law questions.
Branfman calls it “LAW 3.0.” It’s applying new legal perspectives to the media, sports and entertainment business encompassing traditional, new and emerging technologies of production and distribution. His client list include musicians, actors, film & video producers, software developers, athletic organizations, writers and companies of every size and stripe. “They all have one thing in common.” Says Branfman, “their desire to maximize and protect the value of their intellectual property.”
