Disputes in the entertainment industry often blend both professional and personal issues. For instance, when a music band deals with a dispute, there are not only career matters at stake, there are also personal issues related to creating and performing arts. Intellectual property rights might also be involved. These disputes can be complex and often not well-suited for litigation. Entertainment mediation provides an efficient and cost-effective tool for resolving dispute in the entertainment industry.
If a radio station or other media outlet has been playing your client’s music without compensation, or your music, lyrics, or copyrights have been appropriated by another, mediation can help. A skilled, understanding mediator makes it possible to resolve these matters without the expense and hassle of litigation.
