What is a "Creative Entrepreneur"?

  

 A "CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR" is a creative person who  has  sufficient  execution skills to start a viable business.  A "CREATIVE ORGANIZATION" is an  entity that encourages and benefits from the creativity of its executives and other employees.  

From a legal perspective, what is different about providing legal services for them?

Creative Entrepreneurs and Organizations have more potential to benefit from legal services.   The areas of law that may apply include original expression (copyright), branding (trademark),  invention, which may include new concepts, methologies or procedures (patent, if to be made public and trade secret, if to be kept confidential), confidential business information (trade secrets) or an  identity or persona (privacy and publicity rights).  These businesses are often in technology, design  or entertainment but can be in any industry. For example Apple is primarily in technology, but Amazon is primarily in retail and Google is primarily in advertising.  

Who are some famous creative entrepreneurs.
