Marlton, NJ – September 23, 2010: NARM, the music business association, has announced that the third installment of the Association’s new Entertainment Law Conference Series will take place on Wednesday afternoon, October 13, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. The half-day continuing legal education course was designed for attorneys, copyright and licensing specialists, consultants, retail and label executives, law professors, students, artists and artist managers to address the need for information about increasingly complex entertainment industry business models and the associated rights and risks.
“NARM has a long history with the city of Los Angeles and we are thrilled to bring this event to a location with such a rich entertainment culture,” said NARM President Jim Donio. “A number of prominent Los Angeles lawyers and entertainment professionals have already signed on as speakers for the program. We are thrilled to be working with the Copyright Society of the U.S.A., the California Copyright Conference and AIMP to market the event, and with national law firm Ballard Spahr for a networking reception at the conclusion of the conference.”
“Copyright law is the blueprint of the music industry. NARM’s Entertainment Law Course will be a must-attend both for lawyers who want to develop expertise in working with the music industry, and industry professionals who want to be on top of both the major legal issues in the industry, and the direction of the industry itself,” said Corey Field, Associate in Intellectual Property at Ballard Spahr and President of the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. “As current President of the CSUSA, I am so pleased that this event, which is all about the nexus between the law and the music business, is being brought to the attention of CSUSA members, many of whom are leaders in the music industry and entertainment law.”
The program will feature an impressive line-up of top-level speakers from the music and media business and legal professions. Panels will address copyright termination; iPhone jailbreaking; recent judicial interpretations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; and the First Sale Doctrine. A networking reception sponsored by Ballard Spahr will conclude the program and provide time for attendees and speakers to have further discussions on topics highlighted during the program.
