Copyright & Plagiarism
Transcript of Copyright & Plagiarism
William, Chris, Jazmin, and Eoin
Film Plagiarism is when someone steals or passes off film created by others as their own, use film without citing a source, or to make a work that is derived from an existing work.
It is up to a court to decide what is copyright infringement with film. Film copyright lasts just as long as other recognized works.
Even if you only use 30 seconds of an excerpt of a film, you must still note the director and the name of the film. If you don't, you may be subject to a fine of $30,000 for unintentional infringement, and $150,000 for purposeful infringement.
A main reason that film copyright law exists is to prevent you from using works from a creator for commercial gain. There are a lot of unclear areas when it comes to fair use.
Film Copyright in a Nutshell
Film Copyright is a form of protection given by the US law for original film both published and unpublished.
Copyright also protects literature, drama, music, and art. It does not protect ideas, facts, or methods.
Copyrights are different from trademarks and patents. They don't protect inventions and discoveries or symbols, words, and phrases.
