JD, MBA, member, State Bar of California; entertainment lawyer for 29 years. Before establishing his own law practice in 1992, Mr. Levine was an entertainment lawyer in the Legal Affairs Department of Warner Bros. Television and spent two years as resident counsel for Hearst Entertainment Productions. In addition, he has had his own literary agency for the past 17 years.
The level of ignorance and misconceptions out there—among beginning writers and among experienced writer—always astounds me when I encounter it. Unfortunately, I encounter it all too often. Writers may know about what they do, how they do it and why they do it, but, in general, they know little about and/or have misconceptions about the business of writing and the legal underpinnings of written works. All too often, writers simply leave these matters in the hands of their agents and attorneys if they have representation, or, if they do not, trust that “somehow” these matters will take care of themselves. I have designed my course to reduce the ignorance level and dispel the misconceptions. I hope to give writers some basic knowledge so they can be, or become, successful businesspersons as well as successful writers.
