International Entertainment Law



This course focuses on several major issues that arise in European entertainment law practice and how those issues affect the practice of entertainment law in the United States.

The primary issues covered in this one credit course include the right to privacy in the European Union, including the transfer of data to the United States; the protection of a person's name and likeness in Europe and how that protection affects the content of entertainment products and services that are distributed in Europe; and the protection of trademarks, as well as domain names, in Europe.

Each class session includes practical analyses of relevant case studies.
