Who didn't see this coming?! Jerry Heller has filed a defamation lawsuit against Universal for thier protrayal of him in the film "Straight Out of Compton". Of course the story is being told through the personal perspectives of the N.W.A. members and Heller disagrees. While disputes regarding the role of artist managers is in no way a case of first impression for the courts, the film does allow emerging artist an entertaining opportunity to look back on the experiences of music veterans and learn from their mistakes. New artist take heed of this short lesson: 1)read all paperwork and 2) always hire your own outside attorney.

With great ideas, high aspirations and all the motivation in the world, business partners are easy to acquire but hard to divorce.Here are some awesome questions to ask yourself before taking on a partner.
1. Do you want or need a business partner? The risk are high, maybe solo is a better route to take.
2.Does your prospective business partner have solid financials? Ask to conduct a credit check and be prepared to share yours. Transparency is key.
3. Do you share common traits with your potential business partner? It's important to share core business values.
4.Does your potential partner’s skill set complement (or clash with) yours? Opposing yet complementary skill sets work best. Where your strong their weak and vis versa.
5. Do you plan to consult a business lawyer? Business liabilities double when there's another person involved. Lawyer up from the beginning.
6. Do you have the same communication style? Like in any relationship being able to communicate on the same level is key.
7. Have you protected yourself and your brand? Make sure your partner evokes positive brand identity.
8. How will you divide ownership? Thoroughly discuss and have your attorney draft an operating agreement detailing the split and what should happen in the even a disagreement occurs.

Jordan's or nah?! Micheal Jordan has been in an on going battle over his brand in China, due to the failure to trademark the name both English and Chinese. A company has even gone to the extent to trademark his children's names in both languages. While most brands will never face an international challenge of this type, here is a great example of how creating a brand and protecting it through trademarking is so important. Once your brand becomes successful there will be tons of vultures trying to capitalize on its success. Avoid these issues and hire an experienced trademark attorney. In addition to trademarking the brand on its face, they can help you to evaluate and mitigate future brand risk. #trademarking #trademarkinfringment #entertainmentlaw #haylawgroup #smallbusiness #solopreneur #businesstips #businesslawyer #trademark #entertainmentattorney #Entrepreneurs #smallbiz

Entering into a business partnership is like entering into a marriage. In addition to outlining daily operations the partnership agreement serves as your prenuptial agreement. In the event of a divorce, a written agreement will save you time and legal fees. #smallbiz #smallbusinessattorney #texaslawyer #litigationattorney #entrepreneur
