Professor Eric Zohn
Combines a rigorous seminar with an optional externship in an entertainment industry—e.g., motion pictures, music, broadcasting, or Internet. Seminar covers breaking issues in the entertainment field, chosen jointly by teacher and students. Topics in general will include copyright (including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act), intellectual property, trademark, suretyship, insurance, arbiration and mediation, and the role of unions and guilds. Students must write a substantial research paper on a topic chosen in consultation with the teacher and must submit topic proposals, research reports, outlines, and multiple drafts during the semester. Students may elect to take the seminar component alone (2 credits) or the seminar and an externship (4 credits).
Prerequisites: Entertainment Law (CIP130) or permission of instructor.
