F&R Entertainment Law Seminar

I went down to the Fish & Richardson’s “What you need to know about the law & business of Media & Entertainment” seminar this morning (pdf). It was a good review of copyright and trademark with a lot of great stories and industry insight (mostly the publishing industry).
Brad Meltzer was the highlight of the seminar, and gave a great presentation. He certainly bridged the gap between the media/writer types and the lawyer-types, having one foot firmly planted in each profession. His book publishing deals were fascinating, but I suppose any book deal story should be interesting if told by the writer. Who better to tell a story than a fiction writer?
Big portions of Meltzer’s speech are on the Q&A section of his website. Worth a look for anyone curious about one author’s writing process.
