This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Cardozo Arts
and Entertainment Law journal, a law review that has been a
trailblazer among specialized intellectual property law reviews and
remains one of the country's most influential journals in IP and
communications law. In honor of the occasion, the current
editors of AELJ-you will pardon the familiarity, but at Cardozo the
C is understood-have assembled this special issue.    We
celebrated the Journal's twentieth anniversary with a massive book,
reprinting many of its most important articles from the first twenty
volumes.' In contrast, this decennial celebration features new
contributions from some of Journal's most cited authors in the
past decade. Many of these pieces are reflections on and updates
of the author's earlier contributions-a nice way to celebrate the
Journal's past while looking toward the future.

concepts associated with arts and entertainment are being

problems in the growing field of arts and entertainment

students will provide original articles on the full range of
