Business Affairs

Rights Management

Technology has made it easy for anyone to create and distribute content. It has also made it easy to share and “borrow” others’ creative work.

We exist in a culture where duplicating or repurposing content is common, but that doesn’t mean it is always done legally. When the “It’s free. I found it on the internet” mentality spills into a professional environment, the ramifications of copyright infringement and the unauthorized use of intellectual property or a person’s likeness can be costly.

The TEAM Companies provide thorough ownership research, negotiation for licensing and permissions and license agreement review for use of the following:

  • Photography
  • Video/Film clips
  • Stock Footage
  • Specialty props & wardrobe
  • Artwork
  • Logos/Icons/mascots and other corporate identifiers
  • Personal likeness
  • Quotes
  • Locations
  • Unique Design Elements (i.e. lighting design on the Eifel Tower)
