Writers and filmmakers need to understand their legal rights and how to defend themselves from those who may seek to exploit them or falsely claim their rights have been infringed.
This seminar explains how writers and filmmakers can prevent problems from arising by properly securing underlying rights, and by encouraging other parties to live up to agreements by adding performance incentives, default penalties and arbitration clauses. In the event of a dispute, participants learn what remedies are available to enforce their rights. Related topics include protecting your stories, typical compensation and terms of contracts, merchandising deals, and negotiating tactics and strategies. The seminar includes more than 100 pages of useful contracts, checklists, forms and materials.
This seminar is for filmmakers and lawyers. Lawyers earn Seven (7) Continuing Legal Education credits: 4 Areas of Professional Practice credits, 2 Skills credits, and 1 Ethics credit.
