The arts and entertainment rely upon a distribution system dependent on licensing, royalties, and performance fees. The pandemic has interfered with on-site art exhibitions and live performance yet it has reinforced the importance of taking original content and distributing it through various digital platforms and social media. The process of remunerating creators, performers and distributors depends upon copyright, licensing and distribution. The internet has changed terms and conditions for users as it has changed obtaining and monitoring copyright for creators and distributors, from art sales and auction to art viewing and online access. What are the different types of licenses? What are the key points in negotiating a license? What are the critical elements in drafting a licensing agreement? What are the differences for a distribution agreement? When is one agreement better than two? How does the client's business impact strategy?
