Contemporary Legal Issues in Screenwriting

with Tifanie J. Acosta

Have you wondered how you can protect your screenwriting? What is the process of creating a screenplay and transforming it into a film? This workshop will discuss copyright, collaborative agreements, fair use, and the public domain. Permissions to avoid infringement during your screenwriting process will also be discussed in this workshop and will be useful if you are writing about a real person or inspired by someone else's work.
