Publishing, broadcasting, and reporting
Television and film
This area is firmly based on the legal concept of copyright that is the right of the author of an original creative work to be recognized as such, and his right not to have his work copied or exploited by others without his consent. Businesses and individuals can encounter significant difficulties if they fail to properly recognize and the copyright of others; similarly the copyright owner can be severely prejudiced if the copyright is breached by others, or if the copyright owner has given others rights over the copyrighted material without realizing that he has done so. Many of these issues can be prevented or the risks reduced if proper documentation is put in place.
Such documents include:
#Copyright licensing for written media
#Contract for the management of artists and performers
#Contracts for production, licensing, distribution and promotion of audio and music
#Contracts for the development and acquisition of television and film projects
#Contracts for the production, distribution and licensing of film and television programs.
#Software computer game development, licensing and distribution contracts.
