In today’s world of pervasive social media and the Internet, sports and entertainment clients need a sophisticated marketing program that leverages the power of technology.
At the same time, they need to protect their intellectual property and reputations.
To help their clients both deploy and protect their intellectual property across a broad media spectrum, sports and entertainment lawyers must stay abreast of developments in technology and the law’s response to the rapidly changing landscape.
This full-day CLE provides practitioners a survey of intellectual property and related issues that frequently arise in representing the sports and entertainment client, along with practical tips that practitioners can use in structuring agreements and enforcing clients’ rights.

Reimagining the UCC in Your Practice Featuring Robert LeVine
Click on the "In Depth" tab for speaker, tuition and location information.
The Uniform Commercial Code or UCC has been described by the Associate Chief Reporter to the UCC as 'the most ambitious codification ever undertaken in the Anglo American legal world'.
Over twenty years in the making, the UCC governs virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, as well as payment systems used in these transactions and in commerce generally.
Transactions in goods include: sales, leases, movement, storage and secured financing; payment systems include: negotiable instruments; bank deposits and collections; letters of credit; and electronic funds transfers.
In addition, and of particular importance, is Article 1 which applies to all transactions within the purview of the UCC.
An integrated commercial transaction will always involve multiple articles.
As a result, it is essential to have a working knowledge of the whole UCC when engaging in commercial transactions.
An attorney with this level of understanding has an enormous advantage at every stage of a transaction governed by the UCC, whether it is transactional, litigation, or during the ongoing business process.
Attendees will receive a FREE copy of LeVine’s 500-page book, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy, a $60 value.
Attention Webcast Attendees: Your book will be shipped to you. To receive your copy prior to the program, registration must be received by November 24th, 2014. Any registrations received after this date are always welcomed; however, books may arrive after the program’s air date.
View From the Bench | Live and Video

Every litigator has encountered a situation where they wanted to get insight from a judge as to how to handle a particular issue or an explanation as to why a judge ruled as he or she did.
"What am I supposed to do?"
"Why did you allow that?"
"What should I have done differently?"
Whether the issue is dealing with unrepresented litigants, difficult opposing counsel, or simply navigating unchartered territory, there is no substitute for getting explanations and recommendations directly from the judges themselves.
This program focuses on important, timely topics, and provide participants with unique access to panels and presentations of excellent judges from across the state.
The NC Bar Association's Bench/Bar Liaison Committee presents the 2014 View from the Bench CLE as a forum of practical instruction from our state's top judges, appropriate for both new attorneys and seasoned veterans, designed to improve the quality and efficiency of the courtroom experience in our state.
