Entertainment law is a term for a mix of more traditional categories of law with a focus on providing legal services to the entertainment industry. The principal areas of Entertainment Law overlap substantially with the field of intellectual property law, but often involves questions of employment law, contract law, torts, labor law, bankruptcy law, immigration, securities law, security interests, agency, intellectual property (especially trademarks, copyright, and the so-called "right of publicity"), right of privacy, defamation, clearance of rights, product placement, advertising, criminal law, tax law, international law (especially private international law), and insurance law. Much of the work of an entertainment law practice is transaction-based, i.e. drafting contracts, negotiation and mediation. Some situations may lead to litigation or arbitration.
