Licensing and Entertainment
Our licensing and entertainment practice involves representing businesses, creators, artists, entertainers and other clients in all aspects of monetizing their intellectual property and other intangible assets. From licensing software to selling copies of creative works, and from transferring ownership of IP rights to negotiating rights of publicity, we provide strategic and efficient legal representation focused on protecting our clients’ rights in a broad range of transactions.
Licensing and Transfer of Intellectual Property
Just as no two software applications or works of art are exactly alike, no two licensing or transfer agreements are created equal. Protecting your interests in IP transactions requires a comprehensive understanding of the relevant law and the unique aspects of the work (or works) involved, and it requires a heavily-customized contract that accurately reflects the terms of the deal.
When we represent clients in IP contract negotiations, we work closely with them to understand their goals and priorities. These transactions can be surprisingly complex; and, as your attorneys, it is incumbent upon us to ensure that you make informed decisions every step of the way. From licensing fees to representations and warranties, all terms require careful consideration, and they must be drafted in such a way that they leave no room for interpretation.
Our attorneys have significant experience representing intellectual property owners, licensees and acquiring entities in transactions including:
- Licensing Agreements
- Technology Transfer Agreements
- Product Distribution Agreements
Our experience also spans across a broad array of industries, products and intellectual property rights. We have represented clients in transactions involving assets including (but not limited to):
- Creative designs
- Fine art
- Video games
- Trade dress
Entertainment Contracts and Rights of Publicity
With offices in Miami, FL, we represent several clients in the entertainment industry. Our services include negotiating contracts, protecting trademarks and copyrights, and protecting our clients’ rights of publicity. We represent clients in fields including:
- Live performance
- Television and streaming video
- Online entertainment
In addition to representing artists and entertainers, we also represent companies within the arts and entertainment industries as well. Studios, agencies, production companies and other industry players all have a variety of unique legal needs, and we rely on our extensive transactional and litigation experience to make sure our clients’ rights are secure.
Licensing and Entertainment Disputes
In addition to representing clients in contract negotiations, we also routinely represent clients in litigation and other forms of dispute resolution. When deals break down, and when contract terms are not as clear as they should be, taking legal action can be a critical step toward finding common ground. While we seek to achieve amicable resolutions whenever it is in our clients’ best interests to do so, we also recognize that certain circumstances can make litigation unavoidable. When we sit down with you to discuss your case, we will help you explore all of the options that are on the table.
