This is just a quick heads up that I have posted the video for last night's workshop on how to make your books, screenplays, films, etc. instantly more valuable and easier to promote. If you are a VIP/PRO you'll be able to watch it for free, otherwise you'll pay $6 to watch it and get the workbook resource that goes with it.
"Stealing Visibility" : How to Make Your Books, Screenplays, Films, etc. Instantly More Valuable
You may also want to watch:
Fair Use and the Right of Publicity featuring Attorney Justin Sterling
It covers key concepts on what you can write about, the limits of incorporating real, living, people into your creative works (and how that is different to incorporating people into advertisements, news stories, documentaries, etc.)
Copyright & Work-For-Hire Fundamentals featuring Attorney Paul S. Levine
Which discusses several issues related to copyright, and may help you better understand whether or not names of a work are protected by copyright, etc.
Option Agreements, Life Rights Agreements, & Shopping Agreements featuring Paul S. Levine
Which talks about when life rights agreements might be necessary to talk about a real person in your work, and when they might not be.
None of these workshops replace the need to work with an attorney, but watching them can help you get a handle on key issues involved in incorporating real world events, objects, locations, and real people (celebrities, politicians, normal folks), into your work.
Films like National Treasure, the Da Vinci Code, Insignificance (featuring people portraying Marilyn Monroe and Einstein), Chernobyl, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and millions of other films, books, tv shows, and projects based on the real world have helped creatives launch and build very strong careers.
You can watch all these workshops free (and 120+ more) if you are a VIP/PRO, otherwise you can simply buy them one-by-one. It currently costs $24 to get free access to all videos and all live events for 3 months. That price will be going up in July.
