Copyright-Media Rights Drafting Workshop
This is a hands-on drafting course, guided by a practitioner with over 35 years of experience in multinational transactions and litigation, focusing on copyright and related (trademark, trade secret and right of publicity) provisions, contracts, licenses and clauses in a variety of fields in media, entertainment and information/content delivery. Rather than limiting study to existing contract language and case law (both helpful), we craft the necessary language through participatory in-class and take home drafting exercises with two objectives in mind: the object of the contract or other document and knowledge of relevant substantive law. The goal is to enable the student to develop a working understanding of operative IP-centric provisions and a skill set to craft language based on an informed understanding of these provisions.
Prerequisites: completion of copyright course or equivalent work-related experience with approval of professor.
Method of Evaluation: graded in-term take home exercises plus final drafting exercises (floating).
Materials: Professor to provide; third party reference materials available online or in library.
