Clearance and Copyright is the industry-standard guide to almost every conceivable rights issue that filmmakers, videomakers, television producers, and Internet content creators might encounter.

From the initial acquisition of material through the rights issues that arise during preproduction, production, postproduction, and release, this legalese-free guide now extensively revised, updated, and expanded will help you protect yourself and your work from disastrous legal actions.

Among this edition's new features are links to 25 downloadable contracts and 50 illustrative film clips.
