Clark Hill Attorney Joesph L. Voss to Present at South by Southwest March 14, 2014

Feb 13, 2014
Grand Rapids, MI – Clark Hill Attorney Joseph L. Voss will be part of a panel addressing musician’s business models at South by Southwest on March 14, 2014. The title of the program is “New Punk Strategies: Your Values = Your Biz.” In today's rapidly changing music business, musicians are often caught between old and new business models. Many musicians care deeply about their communities and social justice issues, offering their services via benefits or blog and video appearances. Frequently the way they establish their business doesn't reflect the way they operate in the world at large. As the shape of the industry changes, there are new options for structuring a musician's business so they can easily support projects and initiatives while guaranteeing more control over how their art is used.

As practice leader for Clark Hill’s Entertainment Industry Team, Voss represents financing parties for film and television productions. He provides production legal services to independent producers, as well as general corporate representation to companies in the film, television, digital media and music industries.

Voss provides legal services in connection with artist-cause collaborations, and assists clients seeking to utilize media to further their non-profit missions. This involves advising clients on the tax-exemption process, handling the entertainment law aspects of artist-cause collaborations, and providing guidance on the numerous legal issues that can arise when entertainers and non-profits work together.
