Media Law DraftingIn this course students learn to draft documents related to the practice of media law, from traditional media (print publishing, television, and film) to new media (internet and digital distribution). The assignments include pre-publication review of articles and scripts for potential defamation or disparagement claims, copyright and trademark-related drafting (including "lawyer's letters" to clients, advising on the risks of pursuing a particular mark, applications for copyrights/trademarks, and "cease and desist" letters), content licenses, freelance rights agreements, and media-related litigation and mediation documents (including letters demanding retraction/correction, complaints, motion practice, and settlement agreements). The course exposes students to practical drafting situations through real-world fact patterns.
