The text contains complementary chapters that address both U.S. domestic and international issues in entertainment law. The individual chapters consider a plethora of discrete, yet diverse, aspects of entertainment law implicated in a global context. Due to its innovative construct and the resulting inherent versatility, the book could also be employed in a number of other courses within a broader curriculum including those focused on U.S. domestic entertainment law, an introductory course in select forms of intellectual property, a course in advanced torts that considers rights of personality, and the like.
