Music Law / Sports Law

 

Music Law refers to legal aspects of the music industry and certain legal aspects in other sectors of the entertainment industry. The music industry includes record labels, music publishers, merchandisers, the live events sector and of course performers and artists.

The terms "music law" and "entertainment law", along with "business affairs", are used by the music and entertainment industry and should not be thought of as academic definitions. Indeed, music law covers a range of traditional legal subjects including intellectual property law, copyright law, trademarks, image publicity rights, design rights, competition law, contract law, defamation, and licensing.**


Sports law in the United States is the body of legal issues at work in the world of both amateur and professional sports in the United States. Sports law overlaps substantially with labor law, contract law, competition or antitrust law, and tort law. Issues like defamation and privacy rights are also integral aspects of sports law.**
