The new Copyright and Performers Protection Bills are nearly here.
What does this mean for you as a producer?
How does it affect:
* commissioning by broadcasters?
* your intellectual property?
* your contracts with actors?
* obligations to pay royalties on films you’ve already produced?
The IPO has organised a free information session with an expert in the field, Brian Wimpey. Brian studied law at the University of the Witwatersrand and completed his B.
