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 Internet content.

Michael successfully 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.
