Infringement incidents are common in the film and television industry, how can we avoid copyright disputes
In recent years, there have been frequent controversies in the film and television industry. The voices of infringement, plagiarism, similarity, and borrowing have been accompanied by the popularity of various works, sparking a wave of public opinion. How can we avoid copyright disputes?
The producer should try their best to obtain the copyright of the script and original work. If they cannot obtain full copyright, they should also obtain the copyright and other rights of all adapted works such as movies, TV dramas, variety shows, online dramas, games, anime, derivatives, etc. except for this project. This is conducive to preventing the popularity of film and television works, and when developing other forms of projects, they are subject to the copyright owner of the script or original novel.
During the filming process of film and television works, try to avoid using others' intellectual property works. If necessary, formal channels should be used to obtain copyright authorization or purchase authorization.
Respecting originality and protecting copyright can promote the healthy development of the film industry.
