Reviewing public broadcasting (PBS) production and distribution agreements

We've had the pleasure to assist many clients doing educational and innovative documentaries, TV shows, and podcasts funded and distributed by public broadcasting (PBS). Part of working with those filmmakers is reviewing (and sometimes negotiating) the production and distribution contracts that the local PBS channel provides to the producers.
We have expertise reviewing these agreements, especially for reviewing agreements provided by the San Diego local PBS affiliate, KPBS. If you have a contract with a PBS affiliate that needs to be reviewed, feel free to contact us.
Reviewing these agreements is the best way to ensure that you own the IP that you think you own and you don't miss out on other funding and distribution opportunities by agreeing to un-necessary exclusivity.
Additionally, we have significant experience reviewing projects for fair use and providing E&O insurance opinion letters which is often required (or encouraged) for PBS distribution.
