Overview

A Valuable Resource for All Who Must Clear Rights

If you develop, purchase, or distribute original content, you need to clear rights. Rights clearance is essential for authors, publishers, visual artists, musicians, tv producers, filmmakers, website owners, software developers as well as all companies and organizations that advertise and use social media.

Clearing rights means keeping your production free of any material that is likely to spark legal action. Rights an unwary producer might violate include copyright, trademark, publicity, privacy and defamation. Proper rights clearance is not always obvious. And that’s where The Permission Seeker’s Guide Through the Legal Jungle can assist you. This 450-page production resource:

  • explains how to recognize and avoid rights clearance problems
  • provides detailed instructions for clearing rights to use quotes, music, artwork, film clips, people’s names and faces, brand names, life stories, and many other protected materials
  • offers techniques for clearing rights in a way that saves money and minimizes legal risks
  • lays out copyright, trademark, privacy, defamation, and other laws relevant to clearing rights
  • includes over fifty pages of resources and sample forms
