Copyright & Entertainment Law

The entertainment industry, from its most traditional manifestations, such as cinema and television, to the most contemporary ones, such as the internet, social networks, and even the participation of artificial intelligence, generates complex legal relationships that require specialized attention and high technical legal knowledge in different areas, mainly intellectual property, civil law, contracts, among many others.

Artists, athletes, record labels, production companies, film, radio, television, or digital companies, as well as “content creators” and in general the mass media, have a strong legal activity, which requires suitable strategies for the protection of their rights or to enforce them, in compliance with the national and international legal framework.
