Frequently asked
questions

What services are offered by LawTrades entertainment attorneys?
Our top entertainment lawyers can do it all. They can advise on strategic and business planning as well as all legal matters for small and mid-size entertainment industry businesses and freelancers. Also, our attorneys can draft, negotiate and administer all contracts governing development, production, intellectual property, financing, and distribution. The attorneys can also help with pre- and post-production licensing and ancillary distribution deals for media products as well as resolve outstanding legal and contractual disputes to help avoid costly litigation.
Can I just hire a regular attorney to help me?
You could, but it pays to have an expert to assist you. Our entertainment lawyers have many years of experience practicing in entertainment law. Between reviewing and drafting contracts, negotiating deals, acquisitions and licensing, as well as protecting various intellectual property, our lawyers know what to look for when it comes to the entertainment world.
Which states do you have entertainment lawyers in?
Although most of our entertainment lawyers call New York and California home, they usually can help clients in all states and some countries.
What is a copyright?
Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States that gives certain exclusive rights to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software and architecture, and certain other intellectual works, whether published or unpublished. Registering a copyright establishes a public record, which can help prove ownership and is required if you ever need a copyright lawyer to sue for copyright infringement. When a work contains a valid copyright notice, an infringer cannot claim in court that s/he wasn’t aware the work was copyrighted.
Why should I use a lawyer over a “do it yourself” website?
Because doing it right is priceless. Do it yourself sites have limitations, largely in that their forms are standardized and there’s a good chance necessary information particular to your needs is lacking.
