There is a need for entertainment law in South Carolina!
For the first time ever, the S.C. Bar is presenting a seminar focused on entertainment law in South Carolina. Hollywood has chosen S.C. as the location for great films such as Forrest Gump, The Big Chill, The Notebook and The Patriot. Award winning and legendary musicians from S.C. have changed music and popular culture including James Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Chubby Checker, Peabo Bryson, Nick Ashford, Teddy Pendergrass, Josh Turner, Bill Anderson, Edwin McCain, Duncan Sheik, Rob Thomas, Darius Rucker and Hootie & the Blowfish, The Marshall Tucker Band and Eartha Kitt. South Carolina has also bred the best of the best on the athletic fields and golf courses.
But behind the glitz and glamour of music, television and sports glory, lies an industry filled with tough negotiations, odd laws, tax incentives and trends that do not make sense to industry outsiders.
Join us Thursday, October 25th at the Harbour Club in Charleston as we explore the entertainment industry in South Carolina. From sports managers and agents to Grammy award winning musicians and songwriters to band managers who have managed the “A Level” artists, to industry lawyers from Los Angeles and Nashville. Invest your day into gaining a better understanding of corporate laws that pertain to entertainment and sports, trademarks, royalties, publishing, copyrights, managing athletes and “rock stars.”
