The many facets of the entertainment industry may become the subject of litigation. In a business involving many stages, departments, and occupations, the likelihood of legal issues is high. With this in mind, there are a variety of entertainment industry expert witnesses available to provide knowledge and professional expertise on a variety of entertainment-related issues.
The various legalities of ownership within the entertainment industry require the implementation of numerous laws concerning contracts, copyright infringement, breach of contract, intellectual property, licensing, estate and trust damages, royalties, plagiarism and trademark issues, corporate and partnership disputes, negotiations, and finance.
In addition to the various laws unique to the film industry, there are the same types of laws in place that are applicable to any other type of business.
