Entertainment

With widespread advances in technology, consumer appetites for entertainment products have exploded. The most important change in the way society selects and samples leisure products is the speed of the change itself. The number of entertainment outlets and their state of constant evolution provide unique opportunities for the development and practice of entertainment law. The RMKB Entertainment Practice Group embraces the challenges of rapid change, blending our litigation style with a keen appreciation of "show business" traditions. Our lawyers are admitted to practice in the major U.S. entertainment markets and in Hong Kong, and many have hands-on experience in development, physical production, performing, and management. The group is particularly proud of its trial record and is regularly retained to handle disputes involving: copyright and trademark violations; First Amendment issues (defamation); catastrophic production accidents; violation of distribution contracts; media delivery platforming; music and literary licensing; entertainment-based employment claims; and, negligence of professional management.
