Code v. Code is the long-standing battle between cultural practices and legal policies when it comes to commercial dealings in sports, entertainment, and small businesses. From the unknown up-and-comer to the well-known public figure, mishandlings in contracts, trademark, copyright, and right of publicity has landed many entertainers, athletes, and entrepreneurs on the "I wish I would've known" conveyor belt. The adage 'the players change, but the game remains the same' sums it up very well. If you are considering entering or currently are in any of these industries, educating yourself on the legal basics should not be an option. Attaining knowledge is potential power; doing something with the knowledge is power. This empowerment guide provides information to help you with the former and encourages you to do the latter.
