In one medium or another, motion pictures, live plays, and musicals provide entertainment for us all. But taking a successful production from one stage to another involves a host of IP Issues. This entertaining session will cover some of the following IP Issues that must be considered:
- I WANNA BE A PRODUCER: Why are studios getting into the live stage business (525, 600 titltes) and what role do they take on? Licensor only or Rights Grantor & Producer?
- BIT BY BIT, PUTTING IT TOGETHER: What IP issues arise when taking a film to the stage? What is the source material? Are anyone else's rights needed?
- EVERYTHING'S COMING UP GROSSES: The success or failure of a live stage production can lead to other IP issues in the (sub) rights (stock, amateur, commercial use products, etc.)
- THE CIRCLE OF LIFE: Bringing a popular film-based production back to the screen. Should it be done and if so, how and when?
