Course Description

This program was recorded on May 21, 2021

The arts and entertainment industries rely upon a distribution system dependent on licensing, royalties, and performance fees. The pandemic has interfered with on-site art exhibitions and live performances 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 depend upon copyright, licensing, and distribution. The internet has changed the applicable terms and conditions for users just as it has changed the way we monitor and enforce 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? How does the client's business impact strategy?
