Producing creative content is a labor of love. For many artists, developing a concept can take months or even years. Buried in the creative process, many filmmakers forget the legal side of crafting original content. Each year numerous I.P. lawsuits are filed, with some carrying settlements as high as $150,000 or more!

With so much legal liability at stake, a series of questions arise: how do I file for copyright protection, what protections does copyright law give me, when do I own the work and when is it work for hire, and what happens if I or someone else infringes upon protected work?

Whether you create films, episodic series, music, design, or brand name you should know the basics needed to help avoid legal conflict. Join us Saturday, September 8th as Entertainment Lawyer Marissa Crespo answers many of these questions and more. Register before August 25th to save over 15%.
