A panel discussion called "The Good, the Bad, and the Confusing," hosted by the documentary arm of the Producers Guild of America East, will be held this coming Monday, the 31st, at 6:30 p.m. at HBO headquarters in midtown Manhattan (1100 Avenue of the Americas between 42nd and 43rd).
It will probably be quite useful if you're finding that these questions have been haunting you lately:
--Do I use copyrighted material in my production?
--What rights do I need to secure?
--What are the differences in copyright clearance for features, TV and new media?
--What is "fair use" of copyrighted material and how much will it cost?
Moderator, Mark Marabella, will be joined by producer, Judy Hampton, producer, Lesli Klainberg, law professor and director of the Intellectual Property Law Clinic at American University, Peter Jaszi, VP of HRH, one of the world's largest insurance and consulting firms, Paul Paray and copyright lawyer, Ken Swezey.
This is only open to International Documentary Association members and their guests. You can RSVP your reservation request to email@example.com.
