MoBarCLE, in partnership with, bring you this quality seminar.

(This is a “simulive” rebroadcast of a previously recorded theatrical presentation. Presenter Jim Jesse will be available during the rebroadcast to answer questions.)​

In this program, attorney/songwriter Jim Jesse continues his discussion of copyright law as it applies to the ethical issues a lawyer could encounter when representing the very specific business entity that is a band.

Jesse uses specific fact patterns from the later portions of The Beatles career to illustrate these principles, including copyright infringement, as well as:

  • Ethical Issues in George Harrison My Sweet Lord Case (The Featured Case) / Breach of Fiduciary Duty / Conflict of Interest – MRPC 1.7, 2.1
  • Ethical Issues Regarding Band/Organization Dissolution – MRPC 1.13, 1.14
  • Ethical Issues and Conflict of Interest in Representing Competing Interests in a Group – MRPC 1.7, 2.1

This is the third installment of Jesse's Intellectual Property/Copyright series exploring issues lawyers may encounter when representing individual musical artists and bands. While the educational content of each installment stands alone, there are added benefits to attending all three.

Originally recorded August 14, 2018.
