Lawyers, lawyers, who needs them Anyway?

They have a horrible reputation; entire joke books are written about them; more groans than smiles result when you mention their profession. Lawyers: who needs them? You do! Your blood, sweat, and tears go into creating your art--hire a lawyer when it's time to protect it!

Entertainment Law and Intellectual Property

Anytime a play is produced, an actor signed to a role, or a game developed for publication, lawyers are involved in many, if not all, of the facets relating to the development and execution of the project (s). It’s all part of the necessity of doing business.

What we’re talking about here are the “creative assets,” the creative work of artists (e.g., writers, directors, authors, musicians, performers, designers, producers) – in laymen’s terms, their intellectual property (IP). Protecting and safeguarding any form of intellectual property requires a comprehensive knowledge of the law and that is what good lawyers do. - Read more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/entertainment-law-protecting-intellectual-property-2/1014/#sthash.8SpxNsNL.dpuf

The 411 on the LOL!

Comedians can make us laugh until we cry. They can pull us out of the deepest doldrums into an uproarious high, but if you dig a little deeper, you'll find they accomplish even more than that. Ron Greenfiled explains it all. 

Comedians  Make 'Em Laugh!
It can be bizarre, surprising, or improbable, but when it is done well, comedy crosses cultural and ethnic boundaries. It has universal appeal anyone can relate to in some way.
Throughout the years, there have been those comics, actors, actresses, writers, and performers who could hit the right notes with an audience, put their unique spin on some touchy or politically incorrect subject, and in some instances,
bring about change. - Read more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/make-em-laugh/#sthash.uzD5HZdh.dpuf

I'm sure you have your favorites... I'd love to know who they are?
