Focal Press 9781138137288 Overview

Archival Storytelling - What do you do when you're making a movie and need still images or music? Do you know how to go about legally obtaining them? Do you even know where to get them?

In this book, the authors examine in depth how to solve this problem without getting yourself in a tangle of legal issues. In addition, the various terms you need to know are explained in detail - public domain, copyright, fair use, orphan work, and others. Using conversations with known personalities such as Patricia Aufderheide, Hubert Best, Peter Jaszi, Jan Krawitz, Lawrence Lessig, Stanley Nelson, Rick Prelinger, Geoffrey C. Ward and many others, this book will successfully guide you through the maze of issues you'll be dealing with.
