Entertainment industries are among the largest in the world. The legal environment in which entertainment operates involves a confluence of eclectic laws such as those concerning free expression and its limits, those concerning intellectual property and their relationship with promoting, limiting and capitalising creativity, and the laws governing the contractual relationships between parties involved in entertainment productions.
In this book, the authors analyse the major legal issues confronting those involved in entertainment in Australia, and provide clear, accessible statements of the current legal principles involved. They enable readers to understand what the law is and how it is likely to apply in particular situations.
The book uses an accessible, reader-friendly style making it suitable for those involved in entertainment industries, legal practitioners and students of entertainment law.
