Our Nashville entertainment attorneys can assist you with:
- Intellectual property licensing and protection: We can assist with the registration of copyrights, trademarks, and patents. Our team helps individual creators and businesses draft, review, and finalize licensing agreements of all types. Our firm also represents our clients in any disputes related to an intellectual property licensing contract.
- Talent agreements: “Talent” consists of actors, writers, singers, directors, producers, performers, and anyone else who offers some form of creative service. Talent agreements are integral to any project or relationship and can include release forms, agency agreements, and employment agreements. We can assist individual talent and businesses with these contracts.
- Copyright infringement lawsuits: Though copyrights are granted automatically when creative works are created, you must register your intellectual property if you wish to take legal action against someone who steals or misappropriates your work. In a copyright infringement lawsuit, you can potentially recover statutory or actual damages resulting from the theft or misconduct.
Our firm knows how to approach this type of litigation and will fight for the compensation you deserve.
