Clearance & Copyright
Update: Everything You Need To Know
Dubbed "'legal Obi Wan
Kenobi' and fair use guru of the documentary film set" by the American Bar
Association Journal, Michael C. Donaldson will provide a simple, proven
sure-fire way to determine the safe harbor for fair use for any non-fiction
film whether a documentary or a narrative. Then he will walk you through fair
use in fiction films in his highly interactive presentation with lots of clips
from films. It's a must-attend-event for all producers -- whether they make
feature films, shorts, documentaries, television programs, music videos, or
negotiated with insurance companies to offer fair use riders on the E&O
insurance policies, which has allowed many films to be made under the fair use
doctrine. Michael's firm clears over 100 documentaries and narrative films per
year as diverse as Terrence Malick's and Oliver Stone's next films and such
documentaries as Black Fish, 20 Feet from Stardom, Los Angeles Plays
Itself, and Room 237.
Donaldson's latest book,
which was co-authored with his law partner Lisa Callif, Clearance &
Copyright 4th Ed. is used in over 50 film schools across America.
