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>. 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?

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?

For individuals featured in a photograph who are referenced or shown on screen for more than a couple seconds, I would certainly focus on getting as many releases as possible.</p>\n<p>I would start with the copyright owner of the photograph (likely the photographer but it could be the case where it isn’t). Reach out to the photographer and obtain a general release of sorts from that photographer.</p>\n<p>In reaching out to the photographer, they might give you some insight into who the individuals are; it could be their family, for example. They might even be able to assist in obtaining the releases for the individuals in the actual photograph.</p>\n<p>I certainly would rather have it buttoned up and have everyone sign a necessary release so that the risk is inherently zero with respect to exploitation of the project.</p>\n<p>For larger scale productions, if you have <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/26544/script-insurance-clearance-reports-what-are-they-and-why-are-they-important\" rel=\"noopener\">clearance personnel</a> engaged, that is always a huge help to entertainment lawyers because they have the resources and wherewithal to contact individuals, <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102723/e-o-insurance-how-much-of-your-productions-format-is-copyright-able\" rel=\"noopener\">copyright</a> owners, IP owners, etc., and get the necessary permissions in place.</p>\n<p>Lawyers advise but it is not the lawyer’s job to reach out to individuals on behalf of the production, so a designated clearance person on the project is immensely helpful.</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><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span></em> Get a quote for <a href=\"/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102480/eo-insurance-for-film-and-tv-the-value-of-a-lawyer\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O Insurance for Film and TV: The Value of a Clearance Lawyer</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Clearance procedures – E&amp;O</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\" rel=\"noopener\">How can a producer obtain permission to use content protected by copyright?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/producers-eo-what-is-my-distributor-and-financer-asking-for\" rel=\"noopener\">Doc Producer's E&amp;O: What is My Distributor/Financier Asking For?</a></li>\n<li>YouTube: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbih45AJnVlE-_S7oNUpo0qzl\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Dave Stern</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">About</span>: Based in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, Blaney McMurtry LLP is one of Canada's premier law firms. </span><a href=\"https://www.blaney.com/\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">https://www.blaney.com/</a></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><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.

don’t know, I think everybody had a forced rest and film is known for being no rest.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike Groner</strong>: I wish we could say that we got that same rest during the stay-at-home orders but instead, I think we were hit with 45 claims on day one of the orders.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: And generally what kind of claims were those?</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: We didn’t see a lot of claims coming from <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/61710/cast-insurance-5-reasons-to-use-an-approved-cast-doctor\" rel=\"noopener\">cast and crew getting sick</a>. Most of the claims that we received [during the pandemic] were for a coverage in the <a href=\"https://youtu.be/-NbXldCS5tk\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">entertainment package</a> called <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">civil authority</span>, which in itself is not that unique a coverage. It’s included on most standard business insurance policies. However, the way the coverage reacts is slightly different in the film world. Pre-March 2020, there were no exclusions under the entertainment package policy (specifically for civil authority) for communicable disease.</p>\n<p>By April 2020, every film policy had an absolute COVID communicable disease exclusion. Pre-2020, nothing like this had ever happened, so any policy that was purchased prior to March 2020 had coverage for COVID in the form of civil authority coverage. In a nutshell, civil authority coverage gets triggered when a government authority (e.g., police, fire department) doesn’t allow you to gain access to your location as a result of something having nothing to do with the production. So, they essentially revoke your permit or bar access to the location.</p>\n<p>During the stay-at-home orders where you couldn’t gather 10, then seven, then three people, how are you going to film? You’ll be breaking the law if you gather your entire cast and crew. So, that’s what triggered all these claims at that time.</p>\n<p>By April 2020, we were working to come up with a solution for COVID-related losses because even if productions were able to restart (which they did in June), the chances of someone getting COVID were pretty high, and we still faced the threat of new stay-at-home orders. We didn’t have too many in BC but in Quebec and Ontario, they did impose new stay-at-home orders that would have triggered civil authority had that coverage still been available at that time. So in Canada, they did come out with that <a href=\"https://cmf-fmc.ca/news/the-canada-media-fund-and-telefilm-canada-welcome-emergency-funding-to-support-canadas-film-television-and-digital-media-industries/\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Telefilm Canadian Media Fund program</a>, which was designed to put back in coverage for cast and civil authority in the event of a shutdown related to COVID. But in order to qualify for that, you had to be considered Canadian content and not all Canadian projects are.</p>\n<p>We were able to come up with a couple of solutions; they were fairly pricey and they didn’t work for every movie but on the larger independents and the TV series, it was a gift to be able to have some protection if you did have another shutdown related to COVID.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: Do you still lose sleep about COVID regarding insurance claims or is this just a new reality that you have adapted to now?</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: At this point [March 2023], no one is really insuring against COVID. I think people have become pretty comfortable with the risk and a lot of productions build into their contingency fund to accommodate shutting down for a day or two. So, I don’t live in fear that I’m going to get a call that we have a brand-new claim. But for the first six to eight months [of the pandemic], dealing with the claims that were already submitted, that was one of the most stressful periods of my career, if not the most. Every single one of those claims required a true forensic accounting of productions having to prove what their additional costs are above and beyond the budget. It’s not just <em>“OK, you shut down, each day was $100K, here’s your money!”</em> You have to prove your overages and how much that shutdown really cost you in addition to what you had budgeted.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: Even if you think about launch date, right? Like your promotional and box office misses and all those potential gains you missed because of this delay.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: That part is uninsurable.

But in order to qualify for that, you had to be considered Canadian content and not all Canadian projects are.</p>\n<p>We were able to come up with a couple of solutions; they were fairly pricey and they didn’t work for every movie but on the larger independents and the TV series, it was a gift to be able to have some protection if you did have another shutdown related to COVID.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: Do you still lose sleep about COVID regarding insurance claims or is this just a new reality that you have adapted to now?</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: At this point [March 2023], no one is really insuring against COVID. I think people have become pretty comfortable with the risk and a lot of productions build into their contingency fund to accommodate shutting down for a day or two. So, I don’t live in fear that I’m going to get a call that we have a brand-new claim. But for the first six to eight months [of the pandemic], dealing with the claims that were already submitted, that was one of the most stressful periods of my career, if not the most. Every single one of those claims required a true forensic accounting of productions having to prove what their additional costs are above and beyond the budget. It’s not just <em>“OK, you shut down, each day was $100K, here’s your money!”</em> You have to prove your overages and how much that shutdown really cost you in addition to what you had budgeted.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: Even if you think about launch date, right? Like your promotional and box office misses and all those potential gains you missed because of this delay.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: That part is uninsurable. We only insure the actual production costs. We don’t insure the promotion or delivery of the production.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><em><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span></em> Get a quote for <a href=\"/en/film-production-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">film production insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/michael-groner\" rel=\"noopener\">Mike Groner Bio</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/112180/how-does-imminent-peril-insurance-coverage-protect-your-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Imminent Peril</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/112239/how-can-ingress-egress-coverage-protect-your-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Ingress &amp; Exgress Coverage</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/most-common-film-insurance-claims\" rel=\"noopener\">Common Film Insurance Claims</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/the-top-10-films-that-could-have-been-made-during-the-covid-pandemic\" rel=\"noopener\">Films That Could Have Been Made During COVID</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">Content courtesy of the <a href=\"https://vantropolis.simplecast.com/episodes/vantropolis-mike-groner\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Vantropolis podcast</a>.</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><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.

In a lot of cases, especially for established artists and writers and music generally, you would be looking to obtain those rights through two different avenues. There might be:</p>\n<ul>\n<li>An entity that owns the master recording of that track (e.g., the record label)</li>\n<li>An entity that owns the written component (composition) of the track (e.g., the writers, the publishers)</li>\n</ul>\n<p>So, in this scenario, you would be giving a synchronization license deal with respect to the composition to the writers/publishers and then a nearly identical agreement to the owner of the master recording of that track, which is often the record label.

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.

Additionally, K&amp;R insurance can also provide coverage for the cost of hiring a replacement cast or crew member, if needed.</p>\n<h2>Example of a kidnapping/ransom that happened on a movie set:</h2>\n<p>One example of a kidnapping that happened on a movie set is the abduction of <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Paul_Getty_III#Kidnapping\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">John Paul Getty III</a>. 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.

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.

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.
