Self Defense Seminar in New York May 21, 2013

Tuesday May 21st from 9:30AM - 4:30PM

Mark will be returning to New York City on May 21st to present his Seminar Self Defense for Writers and Filmmakers under the auspices of Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts

Writers and filmmakers need to understand their legal rights and how to defend themselves from those who may seek to exploit them. Production companies and distributors often know all the tricks of the trade, while writers and filmmakers know little about how to protect themselves. 
This seminar explains how writers and filmmakers can prevent problems from arising by properly securing underlying rights, and by encouraging the other party to live up to agreements by adding performance incentives, default penalties, and alternative dispute resolution clauses. In the event of a dispute, participants learn what remedies are available to enforce their rights. 
Related topics include:
  • creative approvals
  • typical compensation and terms of studio contracts
  • merchandising deals
  • negotiating tactics and strategies 
Extensive handouts (see below) will be made available.
