Entertainment Law in a Nutshell
A basic but comprehensive survey of entertainment law, this Nutshell gives a big picture overview of the intellectual property, contract, publicity, estate planning, and First Amendment issues that contribute to the field. Professor Burr also addresses specific legal issues that arise in the film, music, and television industries, including discussion of the rise of reality television. This Nutshell can be assigned as a secondary text to accompany any entertainment law casebook, as the primary text for a seminar, or as background information for someone requiring an overview.
