If you are a creator, there are a variety of legal implications you must consider. Whatever it is you produce—a song, a film, a poem, a collection of photography—it's important to protect it, especially considering all the time, energy, and resources you invested. Plus, as a creator, you'll be required to navigate the messy business of contracts. But you don't have to do it alone—an entertainment lawyer can assist you!
Entertainment law is a mix of more traditional categories of law with a focus on providing legal services to the entertainment industry. It covers an area of law that involves media of all types—TV, film, music, publishing, advertising, Internet, news media, etc.—and stretches over various legal fields, including but not limited to intellectual property, labor and employment basics, and rights of privacy and publicity, not to mention the occasional foray into corporate law. Of course, entertainment attorneys are under strict confidentiality to protect a client's creativity.
