Legal Notes -- SMP Hot Links Supreme

A type of entertainment attorney who specializes in music law. He is a member of the bar and is licensed by the state (or states) to practice law. He is authorized to give professional legal advice on copyright, copyright infringement, contracts, publishing, business law, corporate law, patent and trademark law (service marks), tax law, court law, government regulations, international law, immigration law, libel, privacy rights, publicity and merchandising rights, etc.. A music attorney is also able to perform business or legal transactions specifically pertaining to the field of music, e.g., negotiating use rights licensing contracts, and also to related fields, e.g., television, motion pictures, stage, and even book publishing.

He may represent singers, recording artists, bands, producers, artist management firms, music publishers, production companies, record labels, record manufacturers and distributors, unions, guilds, and other music professional organizations, and broadcasters, etc..

The fee charged by a music attorney can vary. For example, the attorney may be hired on a retainer basis, or, he may be paid a flat fee, hourly rate, salary, percentage of gross earnings (usually in the 5-20% range), or some type of sliding scale based on gross income. The fee may be contingent on the quality of the outcome of a negotiation--the better the result, the higher the percent paid. The fee charged would also be relevant to the number of responsibilities the attorney shoulders. The attorney would also be reimbursed for all related out-of-pocket and other add-on expenses.
