Andrew Lee co-authors 2nd edition of ‘Drafting Agreements for the Digital Media Industry.’
Halebury’s Andrew Lee has co-authored a 2nd edition of Drafting Agreements for the Digital Media Industry.
This work contains a collection of sample agreements, presenting annotated contracts from the digital media sector in typical formats used by the industry. It includes agreements for wireless apps, digital downloads, user generated content, social networks, and cloud content. The work goes beyond traditional precedents by giving practical, business-minded commentary and background information to assist both readers intending to draft their own documents and those looking for hands-on guidance when reviewing standard form documents received from other parties.
The book’s commercially-grounded approach will be of value to business affairs teams, entrepreneurs and start-ups in the digital media space as well as legal professionals working in private practice or in-house. Its primary jurisdictional focus is the UK but its scope is international with extensive comparative law comments and practical cross-border guidance for our connected online world.
Andrew comments: ‘This book began life as “Multimedia: Rights Contracts and Licensing” back in the 1990s, written around the time I was seconded from my then law firm to the first consumer ISP in the UK; this latest iteration speaks to the journey legal practice within the ‘digital’ media has taken since then, and embraces mobile, social, and the cloud. If you are working in or around media today, then you are already trying to get to grips with digital, and we hope our book can help you do just that.”
