Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section Liaison Report

by Kara Buonanno and Brette Meyers

The New York State Bar Association's Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section (EASL) is comprised of 28 committees covering virtually all areas of the field including: fine arts, literary works, motion pictures and the right of publicity. EASL hosts frequent, cutting-edge CLE programs and networking events, such as those described below. Membership is not required to attend.

Events Coverage

EASL's spring meeting was held in May and included the CLE programs, "Cutting Edge Case Developments in Entertainment Law" and "Protecting and Enforcing Publicity Rights in Social Media". In June, we sponsored the CLE, "Practicing Entertainment Law in New York: What you Need to Know". A pro bono clinic was also held at the New York Film Academy. The Membership Committee hosted networking socials this summer at a Brooklyn Cyclones game as well as at the Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan.

In September, the Alternative Dispute Resolutions Committee, along with JAMS and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, presented a CLE and networking event on "Expanding the Use of ADR in the Media and Entertainment Industries."

Our next event is the Entertainment Business Law Seminar, an all-day MCLE program held at the CMJ Music Marathon on October 24th at New York University. Panel discussions will include litigation strategies, the role interns play in the industry and copyright legislation.
