Summary

Get fast legal answers written in plain English with no law degree required. It is designed to reduce your legal costs by providing the vital information you need to make informed decisions on the legal aspects of your film, video, and TV productions. The format is carefully designed for quick reference, so you get the answers you need, and quickly.

Learn what you need to do if you want to safeguard your intellectual property, clear the rights to a song or soundtrack, or an actor gets hurt on set.

Thomas A. Crowell is an attorney who used to be a television producer. He has the background and experience in the industry, along with the legal training to back it up.

Big-budget producers have lawyers on retainer, but you are left legally exposed. This book arms you with the practical advice of a TV-producer-turned-entertainment-lawyer.

* Avoid legal pitfalls with this quick reference guide- get real answers written in plain English for filmmakers, not for lawyers

* Three books in one: a handy manual on film contracts, a step-by-step guide to critical legal issues on and off the set, and a quick reference on copyright and intellectual property issues

*Revised and updated to cover YouTube, Internet distribution, webisodes, and production services agreements

Excellent Resource May 9, 2011

The textbook begins with the basics of setting up businesses and goes through financing, tax credits plus so much more. It explains why some options are better than others, and when lawyers are even necessary and when they are not. I really recommend this rental textbook for anyone producing, financing or creating a film. It is straight forward and easy to understand, this textbook is everything you will need. Thanks so much!
