This month on the Business Entertainment Sports and Technology Law Podcast, we pay tribute to those who pay tribute…to their favorite bands. Join ARC Law Group partner Mark A. Pearson and attorney Ben Shaw as they look at the legal issues facing tribute bands like Dread Zeppelin (Led Zeppelin), No Way Sis (Oasis) and Purple Reign (Prince). Find out how the landscape of tribute bands is creating some interesting debates over copyright and trademark issues, and learn why these acts are becoming so popular. Plus, play along with Mark and Ben on “Tribute Band or Original Artist” (send us a tweet with your guesses to @ARCLawGroup).
There are any number of tribute bands playing live tonight, and we highly recommend checking one out wherever you live. If you want more info on the acts mentioned on the podcast you can find out tour dates and schedules events at these links: Petty Theft, Unauthorized Rolling Stones, Stung, Brit Floyd.
