  • "Entertainment Litigation is current, comprehensive, balanced and easily readable -- a must-have for all civil lawyers and judges. Its detailed analysis of complex entertainment legal issues will guide even the most experienced entertainment attorney. For lawyers who might only occasionally handle an entertainment-related matter, Entertainment Litigation provides step-by-step how-to's and understandable case examples. Judges will turn to this treatise as well when issues unique to the entertainment industry arise in their cases. Authored by the most successful and knowledgeable entertainment practitioners, Entertainment Litigation is an invaluable resource." 
    --Hon. Terry B. Friedman (Ret.) 

    "Entertainment Litigation is written by leading litigators experienced in the entertainment industry. As general counsel of one of the studios, I hired a number of them and battled a few others. They know of what they write; they set it forth clearly, enjoyably, and helpfully--for both the experienced and the neophyte." 
    --John Schulman, former General Counsel, Warner Bros. Studios 

    "With contributions from leading practitioners in the field, Entertainment Litigation is a very useful bench book for all lawyers, from those who occasionally handle entertainment matters to those who do so every day. Its chapters cover many substantive topics, from IP law (copyright, trademark, and right of publicity), defamation and anti-SLAPP, to profit participation, the Talent Agencies Act, Labor and Employment, Insurance Coverage, and litigation procedure. It is rare to find so many different topics covered so thoroughly in one book. I will keep my copy close at hand and refer to it regularly." 
    --Scott A. Edelman
