This casebook provides a comprehensive survey of the primary entertainment law practice areas, including theater, motion pictures, music, and television. Although the book does not attempt to serve as a casebook for copyright, First Amendment, or trademark law, each of these legal doctrines are covered in sufficient fashion that a student without prior exposure to one or more of these doctrinal areas can still participate in an Entertainment Law course.The book addresses both the practical aspects of entertainment and the fundamental underpinnings of entertainment law. The selection of topics is based on what practitioners face, and the materials are selected to build a solid theoretical basis for that topic.This is the only book in the entertainment law field to address and integrate the need to teach the practitioner's issues with the jurisprudential framework necessary to make the course appropriate to the law school curriculum. It is especially useful for adjunct professors teaching the course because of its organization around the relevant issues to the practitioner.

During the past fifteen years, changes in technology have generated an extraordinary array of new ways in which music and movies can be produced and distributed. Both the creators and the consumers of entertainment products stand to benefit enormously from the new systems. Sadly, we have failed thus far to avail ourselves of these opportunities. Instead, much energy has been devoted to interpreting or changing legal rules in hopes of defending older business models against the threats posed by the new technologies. These efforts to plug the multiplying holes in the legal dikes are failing and the entertainment industry has fallen into crisis. This provocative book chronicles how we got into this mess and presents three alternative proposals--each involving a combination of legal reforms and new business models--for how we could get out of it.

What remedy does a car manufacturer have to prevent the use of its trade mark for cosmetics, confectionery, office furniture, or any one of a number of dissimilar uses? Except in cases of public deception, the answer was none until the doctrine of trade mark dilution was first introduced into English law and into much of Europe with the advent of the Trade Marks Act 1994 and the EC Trade Marks Directive. This doctrine, `misunderstood, misconstrued, and misapplied' since it was introduced into American law nearly 70 years ago, exists to prevent one trader taking unfair advantage of the name or mark, usually well established, of one business and using it for the exploitation of goods in areas in which the well-known trader is not presently active. This controversial and complex area of law is now of very considerable interest to lawyers, trade mark and patent agents and their business clients throughout the European Union where specific anti-dilution provisions have been widely introduced. Its appearance is timely given the uncertainty about the relevant provisions of the Trade Marks Act 1994 and there can be no doubt that practitioners in the field will be eager to buy and read this book.
