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.
In our new book, we focus on issues you may encounter from the inception of your business to the moment (that hopefully doesn’t happen) you get a nasty lawyer letter for the first time.
You’ll learn how to form your business, protect your intellectual property, and avoid problems when launching your project. Taking a few simple steps upfront to protect your business or project can save time and money down the road. Don't Panic has also been used in undergraduate & graduate classes nationwide to teach business and legal concepts to non-lawyers. Professors can request a FREE evaluation copy
