The Evolution of Chick Chat

26 Apr

Chick Chat at the Beginning

Chick Chat Now

Four months ago, four chatty chicks from Professor Evans’ entertainment law class at Widener University School of Law, Harrisburg embarked on a long journey to start a law firm.  As part of the class, each firm was required to maintain a blog about hot topics in entertainment law.

Through this process, the members of Chick Chat tirelessly worked to maintain our blog and the product of our efforts can be seen through the differences from our very first post to our final post.

Feel free to leave us any comments you may have.

Tebow Mania TRO’d

29 Mar

An order issued Wednesday evening will now temporarily restrain Reebok International Inc. from selling any apparel that bears the “Tebow” trademark name, leaving Nike Inc. with exclusive control over the product.

“The order issued late Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel prevents Reebok from manufacturing, selling and shipping the alleged unauthorized apparel for the National Football League team and bearing Tebow’s name.  It also requires Reebok to offer to buy back such apparel from retailers, and recall the products from shipping channels.  The judge set an April 4 hearing to discuss whether the ban should be extended.”

Can Netflix Survive?

27 Feb

On February 28th, Starz will be pulling over 1,000 titles from Netflix which include TV shows and Movies.  In a decision that came at the end of Starz’s contract, the company expressed concern over the quality of their brand and a necessary step to protect its content.  “This decision is a result of our strategy to protect the premium nature of our brand by preserving the appropriate pricing and packaging of our exclusive and highly valuable content. With our current studio rights and growing original programming presence, the network is in an excellent position to evaluate new opportunities and expand its overall business.”

At the moment, Netflix does not appear to be threatened basing their continued success on the 20,000 plus movies contained within their catalogue.
