Experienced New York Entertainment Law Firm
Promoting entertainers’ artistic and business success
Diane Krausz has more than 30 years of experience representing entertainers, passionately supporting their financial and artistic growth. Diane’s clients span the entertainment industry and include:
Protecting your art through copyright
You put your soul — and possibly a lifetime commitment — into your art. Nobody has the right to take your work from you, but all too often they do. In addition to pilfering your financial benefits, infringers can harm the integrity of your work by unscrupulously using, producing, duplicating or distributing your art with impunity. Covering a wide spectrum of talents, copyright protects books, photographs, musical compositions, computer programs, movies and many other types of work product. Diane registers your work with the U.S. Copyright Office and defends it against unauthorized use.
Licensing, merchandising and spokesperson deals
As an artist, your image and person have value. You deserve to reap the financial rewards of your talents and hard work, while protecting your reputation and personal ideals. Diane works closely with you to develop a clear understanding of the image you choose to project and demands that every licensing, merchandising and speaking engagement deal respects your artistic integrity, your personal ideals and your financial interests.
Supporting young artists
Although filled with exciting opportunities and vast rewards, the entertainment industry can also be cutthroat and ruthless. Talented young artists are particularly vulnerable to unscrupulous agents and fraudulent deals that can undermine the success and wellbeing of juveniles in the industry. Diane supports young artists in their work and protects their best interests. In addition to their financial security, she considers their health, education, happiness, family relationships, friendships and artistic aspirations equally important in negotiating deals on their behalf.
Diane also specializes in representing minors in the entertainment industry. Read her article detailing what parent's should know if their child is in show business.
