[5.0 hrs. California MCLE credit available]
With Jonathan Kirsch, Esq. and Paul Levine, Esq.
Join CLA for an extended length program covering the intricacies of literary publishing contracts. The day will begin with a presentation by attorney Jonathan Kirsch, who will discuss the standard components of a publishing deal with a focus on real world examples from sample agreements. The presentation will also address recent changes in practices due to developments in law, technology, and publishing markets.
After a half hour break, attorney Paul Levine will provide an in depth look at four of the most common compensation arrangements for authors: advances, royalties, first and second serialization rights and best-seller bonuses. The presentation will cover the way these arrangements are typically structured as well as the pros and cons of each model.
This program will be presented at an advanced level and is geared towards attorneys, but all members of the community are welcome to attend.
