Now fully and extensively revised, updated, and expanded, this well-written, legalese-free guide provides filmmakers with essential advice on almost every conceivable rights issue they might encounter: from the initial acquisition of material through the rights situations that arise in preproduction, production, postproduction, and final release. Armed with this book, filmmakers can protect themselves and their work from disastrous legal actions and save thousands of dollars in legal fees. CLEARANCE AND COPYRIGHT, the first book devoted to the clearance and copyright issues that affect the film and video community, is a must read for all filmmakers – producers, directors, screenwriters – whether they make features, shorts, documentaries, or music videos.
