Jan 16th 2013: Legal Advice from Entertainment Attorney David P. Branfman
Whether you’re a freelancer, small production company or part of a large corporate entity, your media business is effected by tax regulations, contracts, copyright, 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. www.branfman.com 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, producers, software developers, professional athletes, 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.”
