Entertainment and Sports

Entertainment, sports, and leisure law covers a wide range of professions and media, including visual entertainment, performing arts, media, and both professional and amateur sports. An attorney who practices this area of law typically provides legal services such as contract negotiation, agent representation, labor law, merchandising, and licensing. This is a broad practice area encompassing both state and federal laws across several legal disciplines, including:

  • Copyright: A person's exclusive right to reproduce, publish, or sell his or her original work of authorship.
  • Agent: A person or entity authorized to act on behalf of and under the control of another in dealing with third parties.
  • Licensing: sale of a license permitting the use of patents, trademarks, or other technology to another.
  • Contract: An agreement between two or more parties that creates in each party a duty to do or not do something and a right to performance of the other's duty or a remedy for the breach of the other's duty.
  • Any party to a contract or production involving entertainers, athletes, or other public figures may need the counsel or advice of an entertainment, sports, and leisure attorney. Agents representing actors or professional athletes often are licensed attorneys.
