There are lawyers, and then there are media lawyers. These lawyers deal with the entertainment business. They have to not only know the business and the industry but be able to advise the clients as per their requirements.
What would you advise your client if he has a film house or is into the production business when it comes to talent acquisition? What sort of agreements will you draw in order to protect the client’s interests?
Think of an IP lawyer in a law firm. What kind of work do they come across? Recently, I was interviewed for an IP law job and was asked all sorts of questions. I was questioned on the copyright amendments, IP prosecution procedure, how to draft an objection, registration of trademarks, etc. In order to be an IP lawyer, you must have knowledge of copyright, trademark, broadcast laws. In fact, you must know the laws governing the internet too.
With the advent of digitisation, the face of media and entertainment has changed multifold. From radio to broadcast, music, cinema, sports, fashion, art has become part of some application or website. Netflix and Amazon Prime are the biggest players when it comes to digital entertainment. Even the biggest broadcast channels have launched their applications to reach out to the younger generation.
There are lawyers who have to ensure that a particular technological advancement let’s say like smart fridge, electric cars, drone technology is secured and the owner/developer of such technology is protected to the fullest extent.
How do lawyers keep themselves prepared and updated in order to render their legal services in this field? With so much information available and so many laws applicable, how do they learn the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge? There is a gap in what is taught in law school and what a lawyer needs to do in order to provide legal services.
With this in mind, we at LawSikho, bring you Diploma in Intellectual Property, Media and Entertainment Laws. This course is designed to address the gap in legal education where students have practical learning within their reach and do not have to learn only the provisions of the statute for the sake of education.
