This will make a smash-and-grab harder.<br><br></li>\n<li>If you need to park the vehicle overnight: stay at reputable hotels; hotel parking lots should be well-lit and monitored by cameras and security guards.<br><br></li>\n<li>Use security cameras: If you have the capability to install <a href=\"https://geni.us/gtbhT\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">security cameras</a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] in the vehicle, it will help you to monitor the gear and also it can be used as evidence in case of theft.<br><br></li>\n<li>Park in a secure location: Park your van in a secure location, such as a gated parking lot or a well-lit area with surveillance. Don't rely on surveillance alone, though, as this won't necessarily deter potential thieves. But a combination of all these tips, <em>plus</em> surveillance, might be enough to deter them. If you make it difficult for them, they will likely move on and look at other targets. <br><br></li>\n<li>You likely don’t need to leave ALL of your camera gear in the vehicle; consider what items you could unload into your residence for the night.<br><br></li>\n<li>In case a theft does happen, have a <a href=\"https://geni.us/PuAA\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Tile/tracker</a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] embedded in a discrete spot within your gear to be able to track it post-theft.</li>\n</ol>\n<p>Always be aware of your surroundings and take any necessary precautions to protect your camera gear.

href=\"/articles/articles/bid/111284/risk-assessments-for-film-productions\" rel=\"noopener\">risk</a>. The general rule is: any time that a producer or individual is using someone else’s IP, or their image or likeness, any intellectual property rights that belong to someone else (<em>i.e., </em>a third-party entity), the producer needs their permission to do so.</p>\n<p>There are some exceptions to that; that’s how productions get made. A production, a feature film, a TV series – you want it to seem like it’s part of society, there might be some incidental references but there are some exceptions to that. In Canada, we have an exemption to copyright infringement called <a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">fair dealing</a>. In the US, it’s known as <a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">fair use</a>. This is basically a series of tests; if you complete it, there is a chance that you would be able to rely on the exception to <a href=\"/articles/copyright-reports-use-them-to-minimize-the-potential-of-a-producers-eo-claim\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright infringement</a> so you could potentially use that material without a third-party claim. You would have a “legal right” to use that material.</p>\n<p>There is also <a href=\"/articles/what-is-incidental-inclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">incidental use</a>.

The general rule is: any time that a producer or individual is using someone else’s IP, or their image or likeness, any intellectual property rights that belong to someone else (<em>i.e., </em>a third-party entity), the producer needs their permission to do so.</p>\n<p>There are some exceptions to that; that’s how productions get made. A production, a feature film, a TV series – you want it to seem like it’s part of society, there might be some incidental references but there are some exceptions to that. In Canada, we have an exemption to copyright infringement called <a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">fair dealing</a>. In the US, it’s known as <a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">fair use</a>. This is basically a series of tests; if you complete it, there is a chance that you would be able to rely on the exception to <a href=\"/articles/copyright-reports-use-them-to-minimize-the-potential-of-a-producers-eo-claim\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright infringement</a> so you could potentially use that material without a third-party claim. You would have a “legal right” to use that material.</p>\n<p>There is also <a href=\"/articles/what-is-incidental-inclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">incidental use</a>. So, if a brand or <a href=\"/articles/what-is-a-trade-mark\" rel=\"noopener\">logo</a> or individual is caught on camera incidentally – maybe a split second, not in focus, should be permissible to use but it’s really a question of risk. Sometimes, something comes up in a <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/26544/script-insurance-clearance-reports-what-are-they-and-why-are-they-important\" rel=\"noopener\">script clearance report</a> or rough cut; <span style=\"font-style: italic;\">e.g.,</span> if I’m reviewing a script clearance report and there is a list of <a href=\"/articles/why-do-fictional-character-names-need-to-be-researched\" rel=\"noopener\">names</a>, the report will tell me how many individuals have that first and last name in the area, province, city, etc. Maybe there is one with the same job as the character which is being portrayed. We want to make sure that we avoid any similarities, especially if there is a negative inference or connotation with that character or anything that could potentially damage someone’s <a href=\"/articles/eo-clearance-process-claims-of-libel\" rel=\"noopener\">reputation</a>, we need to be mindful of that risk.</p>\n<p>There are things above and beyond a script clearance that you’ll see in a rough cut (or maybe not even in a rough cut) that an entertainment lawyer needs to be able to flag. <em>E.g.,</em> if there is a scene with two kids hanging out in a bedroom:</p>\n<ul>\n<li>What does the bedroom look like?</li>\n<li>Is there poster art?</li>\n<li>Are the kids wearing t-shirts or shoes with logos on them?</li>\n<li>Are there iPhones in the shot?</li>\n<li>Other third-party technology with logos showing?</li>\n<li>Would a reasonable person know that that technology belongs to a particular third-party entity?</li>\n<li>How much of it is in focus, are they talking about it, is there a positive or negative reference to it?</li>\n</ul>\n<p><em>E.g.,</em> a kid running away from a bullying scene wearing a pair of Nike shoes, there might be a negative connotation associated with that, so we need to be mindful of the risk and if there is a risk, and if we don’t feel confident that it would meet any type of exemption to copyright infringement, or fair dealing test or incidental use reference, we need to ask that third party for permission.</p>\n<p>Maybe that permission comes with some sort of monetary compensation for them but some type of release would ultimately need to be signed. So, it’s really a question of risk and the goal of an entertainment lawyer is ideally to get risk to zero but practically to just reduce the risk as much as possible.</p>\n<p>When it comes to these exemption to copyright infringement tests, such as fair dealing, that is a defence mechanism. So, even if you go through these tests and you’re confident that you can meet those thresholds, you can’t exactly hold it out as a waving flag and say, <em>“We’re fine, we’ve passed these tests, we can now move forward to production!” </em>There is always a possibility that an entity might sue the production or might in some way try to interfere with the exploitation of that project. So, even if we’re confident legally, we need to be mindful of how that’s going to play out practically, because you still have to defend that claim. So, in the defence of that claim, you would go through the tests of fair dealing to prove it but ultimately if there’s even a chance of that coming up, the lawyer needs to provide a fair dealing analysis/opinion on it and provide that to the insurer so that the insurer feels comfortable enough to provide the <a href=\"/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O policy</a>.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Dave Stern</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Blaney McMurtry LLP</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><em>Are you a producer in Canada or the US?

The general rule is: any time that a producer or individual is using someone else’s IP, or their image or likeness, any intellectual property rights that belong to someone else (<em>i.e., </em>a third-party entity), the producer needs their permission to do so.</p>\n<p>There are some exceptions to that; that’s how productions get made. A production, a feature film, a TV series – you want it to seem like it’s part of society, there might be some incidental references but there are some exceptions to that. In Canada, we have an exemption to copyright infringement called <a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">fair dealing</a>. In the US, it’s known as <a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">fair use</a>. This is basically a series of tests; if you complete it, there is a chance that you would be able to rely on the exception to <a href=\"/articles/copyright-reports-use-them-to-minimize-the-potential-of-a-producers-eo-claim\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright infringement</a> so you could potentially use that material without a third-party claim. You would have a “legal right” to use that material.</p>\n<p>There is also <a href=\"/articles/what-is-incidental-inclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">incidental use</a>. So, if a brand or <a href=\"/articles/what-is-a-trade-mark\" rel=\"noopener\">logo</a> or individual is caught on camera incidentally – maybe a split second, not in focus, should be permissible to use but it’s really a question of risk. Sometimes, something comes up in a <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/26544/script-insurance-clearance-reports-what-are-they-and-why-are-they-important\" rel=\"noopener\">script clearance report</a> or rough cut; <span style=\"font-style: italic;\">e.g.,</span> if I’m reviewing a script clearance report and there is a list of <a href=\"/articles/why-do-fictional-character-names-need-to-be-researched\" rel=\"noopener\">names</a>, the report will tell me how many individuals have that first and last name in the area, province, city, etc. Maybe there is one with the same job as the character which is being portrayed. We want to make sure that we avoid any similarities, especially if there is a negative inference or connotation with that character or anything that could potentially damage someone’s <a href=\"/articles/eo-clearance-process-claims-of-libel\" rel=\"noopener\">reputation</a>, we need to be mindful of that risk.</p>\n<p>There are things above and beyond a script clearance that you’ll see in a rough cut (or maybe not even in a rough cut) that an entertainment lawyer needs to be able to flag. <em>E.g.,</em> if there is a scene with two kids hanging out in a bedroom:</p>\n<ul>\n<li>What does the bedroom look like?</li>\n<li>Is there poster art?</li>\n<li>Are the kids wearing t-shirts or shoes with logos on them?</li>\n<li>Are there iPhones in the shot?</li>\n<li>Other third-party technology with logos showing?</li>\n<li>Would a reasonable person know that that technology belongs to a particular third-party entity?</li>\n<li>How much of it is in focus, are they talking about it, is there a positive or negative reference to it?</li>\n</ul>\n<p><em>E.g.,</em> a kid running away from a bullying scene wearing a pair of Nike shoes, there might be a negative connotation associated with that, so we need to be mindful of the risk and if there is a risk, and if we don’t feel confident that it would meet any type of exemption to copyright infringement, or fair dealing test or incidental use reference, we need to ask that third party for permission.</p>\n<p>Maybe that permission comes with some sort of monetary compensation for them but some type of release would ultimately need to be signed. So, it’s really a question of risk and the goal of an entertainment lawyer is ideally to get risk to zero but practically to just reduce the risk as much as possible.</p>\n<p>When it comes to these exemption to copyright infringement tests, such as fair dealing, that is a defence mechanism. So, even if you go through these tests and you’re confident that you can meet those thresholds, you can’t exactly hold it out as a waving flag and say, <em>“We’re fine, we’ve passed these tests, we can now move forward to production!” </em>There is always a possibility that an entity might sue the production or might in some way try to interfere with the exploitation of that project. So, even if we’re confident legally, we need to be mindful of how that’s going to play out practically, because you still have to defend that claim. So, in the defence of that claim, you would go through the tests of fair dealing to prove it but ultimately if there’s even a chance of that coming up, the lawyer needs to provide a fair dealing analysis/opinion on it and provide that to the insurer so that the insurer feels comfortable enough to provide the <a href=\"/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O policy</a>.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Dave Stern</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Blaney McMurtry LLP</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><em>Are you a producer in Canada or the US?

The insurance company would look at the initial budget of the production and cross-reference this with the extra costs incurred to complete the project.

The largest limits on a production policy are typically:<span style=\"font-weight: bold;\"> i)</span> cast coverage and<span style=\"font-weight: bold;\"> ii)</span> <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/negative-film-and-faulty-stock-insurance-explained\">negative film &amp; faulty stock coverage</a>. Cast claims can be among the biggest claims that a project can incur. The largest cast claim was approx. $50M USD, on the <span style=\"font-style: italic;\">Fast &amp; Furious</span> franchise, as a result of <a href=\"/articles/how-to-call-a-wrap-on-top-film-insurance-claims\" rel=\"noopener\">Paul Walker’s tragic death</a>. The largest cast claim in Canada resulted from Heath Ledger’s death during production of <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Imaginarium_of_Doctor_Parnassus\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><em>The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus</em></a> (2009). Ledger’s role, you may recall, was recast with three actors: Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law.</p>\n<p>The costs associated with replacing an actor mid-production due to injury or death can be huge. Production has to come to a grinding halt, suitable new actors have to be found, and then production has to restart. The costs of doing these extra shoots would be covered by cast insurance. The insurance company would look at the initial budget of the production and cross-reference this with the extra costs incurred to complete the project. The production has to demonstrate that all these <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/75392/film-production-equipment-insurance-why-you-need-extra-expense\" rel=\"noopener\">extra expenses</a> incurred were truly necessary to complete the project. They would have to show how much overtime the crew was paid, extra costs for cast, locations, equipment rentals, hair &amp; makeup,<em> etc.</em></p>\n<p>Negative film &amp; faulty stock insurance covers losses to your actual footage. This term is from an older era of filmmaking where productions shot on celluloid and, of course, there is a higher risk of celluloid being lost or damaged, in part because it is flammable, <em>etc.</em></p>\n<p>There is a possibility here that all of your footage could be lost, and you would have to reshoot everything. Cast and neg/faulty stock insurance will always have a limit that is around the <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/blog/film-production-insurance-premiums-one-way-to-save-money\">full gross budget of the production</a> because there is the risk that everything would have to be redone.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\">— <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/davidmcleish\">David McLeish</a> | Account Executive, Front Row Insurance<br>Courtesy of the <em>BIPOC Credits</em> podcast: <a href=\"https://shows.acast.com/bipoc-credits\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">https://shows.acast.com/bipoc-credits</a></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><strong><em>Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</em></strong> <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/film-production-insurance\">Get a quote for film production insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-weight: normal;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><em><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">About</span>: Front Row Insurance Brokers Inc. is an independent insurance broker that specializes in the entertainment industry – specifically, the film industry.

The kidnappers initially demanded $17 million for his grandson’s release, but Getty Sr. offered to pay only $2.2 million, the maximum amount covered by the K&amp;R policy.

In 1973, while the younger Getty was working as an extra on the set of a movie in Rome, he was kidnapped by a criminal organization known as the \"Ndrangheta\" and held for ransom. This kidnapping was dramatized in the movie <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_the_Money_in_the_World\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">All the Money in the World</span></a> (2017).</p>\n<p>His grandfather, J. Paul Getty Sr., who was one of the wealthiest men in the world at the time, initially refused to pay the ransom, leading to a prolonged and highly publicized ordeal. Getty Sr. had taken out a K&amp;R insurance policy in anticipation of something like this happening to a family member. The kidnappers initially demanded $17 million for his grandson’s release, but Getty Sr. offered to pay only $2.2 million, the maximum amount covered by the K&amp;R policy. After further negotiations, Getty Sr. agreed to pay $3.2 million, and his grandson was released after being held for more than five months.</p>\n<p>Hopefully, such a situation never occurs on your film/TV set, but if it does, having K&amp;R insurance in place would be very helpful because the policy can include ransom payments.

And as such, animation houses are thinking more broadly as children’s entertainment creators.</p>\n<!--more--><p>We are now living an in a time where web-series is the most watched form of entertainment and there is an ever-expanding sprawl of streaming video on demand. The rise of streaming has helped give animation a wider platform and as such, productions are becoming more concerned about protecting these properties.</p>\n<p>The average Canadian spends ~10 hours daily consuming various forms of media, with digital media accounting for 50% of daily consumption habits and mobile phones accounting for 1/3 of media time. Studies suggest that Internet consumption, when combined with mobile usage, has surpassed TV consumption.</p>\n<p>When developing an animated series that has enormous commercial potential, production companies are no longer just thinking about the characters in the series, but also in other media formats and merchandising activities. As the creators develop the character, they consider the characteristics that provide a character's uniqueness; a <a href=\"/articles/why-do-fictional-character-names-need-to-be-researched\" rel=\"noopener\">name</a>, physical appearance, and attitude or character traits.</p>\n<p>If the character is used outside of the series, the production company wants to ensure that it is protected. It’s rare to see a cartoon character in only one medium. It is not uncommon today to find a character that makes its first appearance in an animated series to be immediately licensed for toys, other products and services, and to be exploited in other media formats. And as such, characters need to be protected by a combination of copyright, trademark and unfair competition laws.</p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.copyright.gov/title17/\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">The 1976 US Copyright Act</a> provides creators and/or owners of graphic characters copyright protection that is strong, but limited. <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102723/e-o-insurance-how-much-of-your-productions-format-is-copyright-able\" rel=\"noopener\">The copyrightable expression</a> of a character is much more than just the character's physical appearance; it includes the specific name, physical appearance, and character traits of that character.</p>\n<p>One of the more difficult problems of applying copyright law and protection to an animated character is protecting a particular character once that character has taken on a life of its own and the character is no longer existing only in the original context in which it first appeared. Copyright law will find that <a href=\"/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright infringement</a> has occurred when someone other than the rightful copyright owner of the character uses that character without permission, especially if such use copies the appearance and unique character traits that distinguishes the particular character.</p>\n<p>But, because <a href=\"/articles/can-an-idea-be-copyrighted\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright law does not protect ideas</a> from infringement, and only protects the expression of those ideas, courts will not protect character types. Therefore, the best way to protect an animated character under copyright law is to ensure that the character's appearance and personality are specific and unique.</p>\n<p><a href=\"/articles/what-is-a-trade-mark\" rel=\"noopener\">Trademark law</a> does not allow for an animated character to be trademarked solely for its own protection, but it does permit the character's name and likeness to be trademarked and as such, several of our larger animation clients are requesting additional classcode research in the trademark offices for animated characters and elements. They are interested in reviewing what exists in classcodes 38, 41, 3, 9, 16, 18, 24, 25, and 28, which cover such things as telecommunications services, education and entertainment services, toys and games, sporting equipment, video and audio equipment, paper goods, textiles, clothing, and cosmetics and cleaning preparations.</p>\n<p>Additionally, clients are requesting <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">design and image reports</span> to ensure that their animated character, prop, product design or logo is not inadvertently similar to an existing property. This type of search involves meticulously sifting through images from a vast collection of databases, including but not limited to reverse image software and Canada, US, and international trademark design marks. This report provides a detailed account of any images, toys, products or design marks that are notably similar to the item and helps provide peace of mind that the design is not infringing on any other proprietary works.</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">The Research House Clearance Services</span> specializes in providing research services for the entertainment industry, including script clearances, title searches and Design &amp; Image Reports.

<a href=\"/articles/blog/film-production-insurance-premiums-one-way-to-save-money\" rel=\"noopener\">net insurable budget</a> of the production. The net insurable budget is calculated by removing those items out of the gross budget that the client does not want to insure (<em>i.e.,</em> unit publicity, insurance, and general expense). The film insurance rates will vary from production to production and depend on criteria such as:</p>\n<!--more-->\n<ul>\n<li>Type of production (<em>e.g.,</em> Feature, TV series)</li>\n<li>Inclusion of any <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/25570/film-production-insurance-covering-stunts-and-special-effects\" rel=\"noopener\">stunts or special effects</a></li>\n<li>Any work in or around <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/111329/film-and-hd-production-companies-and-watercraft-use\" rel=\"noopener\">water</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/25891/aircraft-use-in-a-film-production-don-t-fly-solo\" rel=\"noopener\">Aerial</a> work</li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/foreign-locations\" rel=\"noopener\">Locations outside Canada/US</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>Most of these factors will cause the film insurance premium to increase. The rate from the insurance company is applied against the net insurable budget to determine the final premium. The number of episodes and length of production rarely have an impact on price. The only time this would have an impact is if it were a very short shoot and we could offer a <a href=\"https://shortshoot.frontrowinsurance.com/\" rel=\" noopener\">short-term policy</a>. This type of policy would offer very limited coverages and would usually only offer coverage for 15 days or less.</p>\n<p>In addition to the rate and net insurable, the insurance companies have a minimum premium that they have to charge for a policy to ensure they can cover all of the administration costs of issuing and servicing the policies. Their minimum premium threshold might cause two different projects which have different budgets, to still have the same premium. This is usually the case in lower budget projects. The insurance company is stuck charging a minimum premium as they have to absorb the same administrative costs no matter what the budget of the production.</p>\n<p><strong>Related Post</strong>: <a href=\"/articles/blog/film-production-insurance-premiums-one-way-to-save-money\" rel=\" noopener\">FILM PRODUCTION INSURANCE PREMIUMS: ONE WAY TO SAVE MONEY</a></p>\n<p><strong>Related Video</strong>: <a href=\"https://youtu.be/DUqbD3Hr7tQ\" rel=\" noopener\">WHAT IS A PREMIUM?

This type of policy would offer very limited coverages and would usually only offer coverage for 15 days or less.</p>\n<p>In addition to the rate and net insurable, the insurance companies have a minimum premium that they have to charge for a policy to ensure they can cover all of the administration costs of issuing and servicing the policies. Their minimum premium threshold might cause two different projects which have different budgets, to still have the same premium. This is usually the case in lower budget projects. The insurance company is stuck charging a minimum premium as they have to absorb the same administrative costs no matter what the budget of the production.</p>\n<p><strong>Related Post</strong>: <a href=\"/articles/blog/film-production-insurance-premiums-one-way-to-save-money\" rel=\" noopener\">FILM PRODUCTION INSURANCE PREMIUMS: ONE WAY TO SAVE MONEY</a></p>\n<p><strong>Related Video</strong>: <a href=\"https://youtu.be/DUqbD3Hr7tQ\" rel=\" noopener\">WHAT IS A PREMIUM?

The insurance company is stuck charging a minimum premium as they have to absorb the same administrative costs no matter what the budget of the production.</p>\n<p><strong>Related Post</strong>: <a href=\"/articles/blog/film-production-insurance-premiums-one-way-to-save-money\" rel=\" noopener\">FILM PRODUCTION INSURANCE PREMIUMS: ONE WAY TO SAVE MONEY</a></p>\n<p><strong>Related Video</strong>: <a href=\"https://youtu.be/DUqbD3Hr7tQ\" rel=\" noopener\">WHAT IS A PREMIUM?
