Lighting Law is not a common term for the legal aspects of the lighting industry, but it should be. No other term does this body of law justice. Lighting law describes the area where attorneys possess the experience and understanding of the production side of the entertainment industry. Of course, we also are well versed in all areas of production, including theatrical and stage lighting, pro audio, professional video, and laser show companies, among many others.
Lighting Law encompasses all the production-related areas of legal work in the entertainment industry. This includes Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, Contracts, Negotiations, Employment law, Business law, and Business advisement. Gleam Law handles all of these areas, from filing the patent and registering the trademark on a new product, to drafting and negotiating touring and video production contracts.
Research and development resources often pay off with a new product. We can help you with the patent and trademark representation on your new product. Often, companies tend to overlook trade dress protection, which protects the non-functional aesthetic of their new product. We will help you protect your innovations in all the ways that matter.
Content and Design
Video content and certain aspects of design should also be protected and properly licensed. Often, this is overlooked and can harm the long term viability of the company and the creative works. This can fall in one or more of the following protections: copyright, trademark, patents, contracts.
“An image is simply not a trademark, a design, a slogan or an easily remembered picture. It is a studiously crafted personality profile of an individual, institution, corporation, product or service.”
