Learn Your Rights: Using Mash-Ups and Remixes

Mar 13, 2017 | 12:30pm – 2:30pm CT

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

For years, Michael Donaldson has been obtaining E&O insurance for films to be commercially released which are partial or total remixes and mash-ups. Your legal rights are much stronger than you might think. Learn the latest (and the earliest) on how the courts have endorsed the flood of new films being created. Big studios go along with the court's logic when it suits their promotional purposes, but face a much different reality when taking a case to court. Donaldson has been called the Obie-Wan-Kenobi of fair use by the American Bar Association Journal. His highly interactive workshops have helped thousands of filmmakers understand their rights.
