The creative works of these individuals are protected from unauthorized use by intellectual property laws. As a result, before a production can move forward, ownership of all intellectual property rights must be determined and cleared for use. Failing to take this step could result in significant legal problems, delays and extra costs for the production. Producers may want to seek help from experienced attorneys to help acquire necessary rights, negotiate fair licenses and avoid liability. WHAT IS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS CLEARANCE? Rights clearance is the process of obtaining permission to use works owned by third parties. Materials may be protected by trademark, copyright, privacy and other laws. The first step in the clearance process is determining what creative works have been or will be used in the production. Legal advice is essential in determining when intellectual property rights exist, who owns the rights and whether permission is needed. The production as a whole must be reviewed, along with each individual element, to identify any intellectual property rights that may be implicated and protected. Where permission or a license is necessary, an experienced attorney can help ensure that the scope and duration of the license encompasses all intended uses of the work now and in the future. WHEN IS TRADEMARK CLEARANCE NEEDED? Trademarks can be words, phrases, symbols, designs or a combination of those components that identify and distinguish the sources of certain goods or services. Some examples of trademarks include brand names, slogans, phrases, taglines, logos, product images and distinctive designs. These may be depicted in film and television productions as scripts, photographs, recordings, clothing, scenery and location shots. When third party trademarks are used, permission from the respective owners may be required unless there is an exception or defense under trademark laws. DEFENSES Various defenses may allow the use of trademarks without permission. For example, the Fair Use Doctrine allows a party to use a trademark as a descriptive term, rather than for its association with a brand, goods or services. In this case, the trademark is only used nominally, and consumers are unlikely to be confused. Fair use may also apply where the trademark is depicted in the context of commentaries, criticisms or parodies, where the trademark is used in an artistic or editorial parody, provided such use is not closely tied to commercial use. WHAT ARE THE KEY ISSUES IN COPYRIGHT CLEARANCE? Copyright law can protect a variety of works, including text, illustrations, photographs, artwork, identifiable people, locations, buildings, monuments music and sound recordings. Notably, there may be multiple copyrights in a single work. For example, a script may include excerpts from other writers, a photograph may show artwork by another artist or a musical recording may sample other compositions. Each individual element of a work must be considered no matter how minimal its use to determine whether permission is needed.
