Importance of Securing Script Chain of Title

Professionals in the film industry, especially writers and producers will hear about a concept called “chain of title”, if they have not already heard about it. Chain of title refers to the succession of title of ownership of copyright back to the original owner.

Prior to making a film, it would be prudent for a producer to make himself or herself aware of the kinds of agreements required to secure chain of title of the film, and a lawyer oftentimes can provide valuable assistance with these matters.

Although there is an upfront cost and time to properly secure chain of title, the cost of not doing so can ultimately be much greater as the chances of entering into a distribution deal may be jeopardized.
