This course will introduce students to basic and more sophisticated legal and business issues surrounding the negotiation of agreements for intellectual property and for the services of talent with entertainment companies in the theatrical film and streaming business. The course will involve three or more different types of deals and explore the issues which may arise negotiating an option and purchase of book/remake rights or other rights; services agreements for a producer, writer and director with an equity financier for an "independent film,” and with studios and streaming companies . Major practitioners in the field may be present, who, along with the instructor, will discuss the issues which may arise in these negotiations, and the subtle dance between the lawyer for the talent and the lawyer for the financier/distributor. We will also discuss the cataclysmic changes happening the entertainment business and in the media more extensively, and the lawyer’s role in those changes.
