Reality Bites: The Limits of Intellectual Property Protection for Reality Television Shows

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Reality television is an incredibly successful genre of entertainment. Reality TV has had enormous ratings success beginning in the early 2000’s, and its influence (and revenues) are only likely to increase. Given the value of these properties, an important issue for reality TV creators and producers is the degree of intellectual property protection available to stop competitors from appropriating the content of reality programming. This paper first documents the rise of the reality genre. It then explores both copyright and trademark jurisprudence affecting reality plaintiffs and offers original analysis of this important aspect of intellectual property law.
