What is an Agent, Artist and Business Manager and Why do I need One?
Entertainment law, the art of representing professional athletes and entertainers, is the body of law and legal principles that has developed and evolved in the course of conducting the businesses of and representation of professionals in the fields of Sports, Music, Entertainment, Publishing, Motion Picture, Television, Theater, Interactive Multimedia, and the Internet.
Each of these entities has its own unique features and characteristics in common with the others but consists of a wide variety of legal concepts, rules, statutes, regulations, case law, practices, customs, and legal principles which have a particular application to the creation, production, distribution, and marketing of sports and entertainment intellectual properties.
Each branch of the sports and entertainment industry is generally dominated by a small number of larger multi-national organizations being provided entertainment product by large numbers of individuals and smaller companies. Because of this concentration of power, there is a great emphasis on politics and personal relationships in the sports and entertainment industry. As with all other areas of the entertainment industry, the Sports business is dominated by a few powerful companies and personalities that control the creation , production, distribution and marketing – the legal rights to the commercial exploitation of the sports entertainment product.
The sports and entertainment industries, as specialized areas, are composed of many sub-divisions to benefit and enrich an athlete including product endorsements, commercial ads, corporate sponsorships, personal appearances, acting, recording, publishing, concert promotion, talent management, and merchandising. The primary ones are the selling of sports, television, radio, motion picture, and advertising products as well as multimedia, music recording and literary publishing.
Due to the subjective and creative nature of pro sports, and because of the degree of control by the few, the sports agent and business manager must know how the various sports operates and it’s personalities, the customs and practices, and how ones unique talents and abilities and rights are obtained, and protected legally for optimum commercial exploitation for the player. Most importantly, a good sports agent and business manager must have strong contacts and relationships with key people in the sports and entertainment industry, and must have a good reputation.
