NCOPM Fights California Talent Agency Act

The National Conference of Personal Managers (NCOPM) has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the California Talent Agencies Act (TAA), which only allows “licensed” talent agents to procure employment for artists. “The provisions, interpretation and enforcement of the TAA have resulted in personal managers being unfairly singled out without due process and denied the ability to pursue lawful business opportunities to the detriment of all personal managers and the artists which they represent,” said NCOPM President Clinton Ford Billups Jr. For more information, visit http://www.ncopm.com.
