In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – In this segment of a plenary panel held at a 2008 meeting of the American Bar Association focusing on the entertainment & sports industries, panelists Michael Plonsker and Kenneth Freundlich explain what the California Talent Agency Act does to regulate the activities of would-be artist agents, and what happens when an unlicensed agent (such as a personal manager) procures employment for a client. The panel then discusses the implications of recent decisions handed down by California courts which have an impact on the Act and how it is interpreted, and what these developments mean for lawyers, artists, agents and managers.
