Copyrights and Wrongs Workshop
Blood, sweat, tears and countless dollars went into making your movie so the last thing you need is the burden of legal issues when you are ready to distribute your film. At this workshop, attendees learned about the process of licensing as the experts discussed the acquisition of copyrighted materials and addressed the questions of when and how a filmmaker can legitimately use copyrighted materials, from old footage and videos to music. The workshop will also clarified the different types of clearance, their legal procedures, fees and time required for a film.
