IP Registration And Transfers In New And Emerging Entertainment Media

Realizing the value of IP rights generally begins with registration and copyright, but achieving their full value often depends on your legal team’s ability to negotiate and document future agreements and partnerships for wider distribution or licensing into new channels.

Los Angeles intellectual property attorney Brian J. Murphy has over 25 years of experience in entertainment IP acquisitions, licensing, sales and transactions in Southern California and around the world. He can help you identify, evaluate and document licensing and distribution rights that not only generate revenue streams, but that also let you maintain a measure of control over the use of your entertainment media content or software application once you’ve made it commercially productive.
