The entertainment industry is driven by the energy and creativity of artists whose works span a variety of media. Entertainment, including the entire creative arts industry, is faced with new challenges in this digital age to successfully protect intellectual property rights. With the astounding growth of social media and the proliferation of digital assets, new intellectual property issues have affected the industry, particularly in the areas of digital media, publishing, and distribution of artistic works.
COJK counsels a variety of clients involved in this diverse and dynamic field, and has been doing so for decades. We assist authors, playwrights, musicians, sculptors, production studios, video game developers, interactive media publishers, multimedia developers, and research institutions in protecting their brands, rights of publicity, and entertainment content.
We also help to protect the systems related to digital media, including digital video and audio codecs, data transfer techniques, digital photography and image processing methods, wireless communications, digital 3D technologies, gaming, and virtual/augmented reality systems.
