Intersectionality in New Media for the Business & Entertainment Attorney

1h 6m

Created on December 08, 2017



Entertainment, technology, and new media intersect like never before and continue to evolve at record speed. In order to keep up, attorneys must be prepared for questions from clients focused on these intersections, and must gain proficiency in addressing these types of matters - which requires an understanding of established law, new trends, and new technology-advanced scenarios.

Some of the hot topics today range from doxing, to the relationship between the First Amendment and social media, to legal claims around 3-D printing, Artificial Intelligence, and memes. Attorneys must be ready to advise clients on strategy and execution, while simultaneously identifying best practices and outlining common pitfalls in the realms of entertainment, technology, and new media - issues which can derail a client's legal protections and preclude a company from creating a plan that will allow it to create, cultivate, and monetize revenue streams.

Candice Cook Simmons, Esq., a New York City-based Managing Partner at The Cook Law Group, PLLC, will review these issues and assist attorneys in identifying best practices and pitfalls in advising clients in these complicated matters.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify common mistakes in creating an Entertainment, Intellectual Property, Technology, or New Media strategy - and how to avoid those missteps
  2. Review Business Development strategies for attorneys working in one of these practice areas
  3. Discuss best practices for protecting clients' legal interests when you have “done everything right" but things have still gone wrong
  4. Assess the impact of the FTC on Entertainment, Intellectual Property, Technology or New Media strategy, including investigative and law enforcement authority, endorsement guides, and DotCom disclosure guidelines
