Theatre is all about collaboration. Directors work with playwrights, producers work with directors and playwrights work with producers – apart from everybody else involved in a play. It is nearly inevitable to share and develop ideas with others during the production of a play or a West End show. But who will own the copyright in the end product and ultimately can exploit their rights when the show is a success? This podcast will guide you through certain rules and the legal framework of collaboration in the theatre.
Speakers included Harry Karaolou, lawyer at LG LLP, Annette Mees, Dutch theatre director based in London, Stephen Keyworth, writer for television, and Emma Taylor, artistic director of the Canal Café Theatre.
The event took place at the Rootstein Hopkins Space in September 2008.
The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
