The MSBA Art & Entertainment Law Section Presents


"Content, Control and the Socially Networked Film"

Our filmmaking clients must reinvent their film production and distribution models under the pressure from digital piracy, smart phones and personal video players, YouTube, and social networks. Given the high cost of production and relatively limited number of theatrically distributed feature films each year, motion picture producers are exposed to much greater risk from digital piracy than other media. At the same time, changing technology has created new opportunities for film producers, filmmakers and audiences to interact.


Jon M. Garon, Esq.

Jon M. Garon, Professor of entertainment and IP law at Hamline and Of Counsel to Gallagher, Callahan & Gartrell, PC, will discuss approaches to clients' business and contractual arrangements that allow filmmakers and producers to succeed in the modern, digital environment.
