class=\"speakabletext\">Special event wedding insurance protects a couple if they are sued as a result of a mishap at their wedding that injures a guest or damages the venue. It also covers lost rings, presents, gowns but does not cover the missing best man.</p>\n<h2 class=\"speakabletext\">Why Get Wedding Insurance?</h2>\n<p>Yikes:</p>\n<ul>\n<li class=\"speakabletext\">Alex and Robin spend months planning their summer wedding on a relative's farm. On their big day, a forest fire blocked access to the farm. With the right wedding insurance policy, the couple can postpone their wedding and receive the money they lost (less the deductible)—including money for the invitations, wedding cake, food, rented dresses and suits and non-refundable deposits for the band, flowers and other suppliers.</li>\n<li>The ring is stolen from the truck of the best man’s car. Special event wedding insurance will pay for a replacement.</li>\n<li>Right before walking down the aisle, the marquee tent is buffeted by wind and comes loose from its moorings and injures guests and destroys the buffet. The wedding insurance policy will provide the wedding couple with a lawyer to defend the resulting lawsuits from friends and relatives and the policy will also pay for the judgement amounts and will pay for the food and destroyed catering tables.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2 class=\"speakabletext\">How Much Does Wedding Insurance Cost?</h2>\n<p class=\"speakabletext\">A basic one day wedding insurance policy that covers: attire, presents, deposits and venue liability usually costs anywhere between $105 and $350 CAD, depending on the amount of coverage you want. Pricing subject to change.</p>\n<p></p>\n<h3>Do You Really Need Wedding Insurance?</h3>\n<p>If you cannot afford the costs associated with a lawsuit then it is smart to transfer the risks of your wedding to an insurance policy. The cost of one day event insurance for a wedding is usually 1% or less than the cost of your wedding budget. Often the venue will not allow you access until you prove you have short term venue liability. The venue may also want to see evidence of venue alcohol liability.</p>\n<h3>When Should You Get Wedding Insurance?</h3>\n<p>As soon as you start your wedding checklist. Let's say you put a deposit on your wedding venue months in advance of your wedding date and then it is damaged in a windstorm a month before the big day. With online wedding insurance, you'll receive your deposit back.</p>\n<h3>What Does Wedding Insurance Cover?</h3>\n<p>Check our online site to learn all the ways you will be protected.</p>\n<h3>Wedding Insurance Doesn't Cover...</h3>\n<ul>\n<li>A change of heart.</li>\n<li>Unused alcohol</li>\n<li>Photos or video or food that was not as good as you were expecting</li>\n</ul>\n<p>Cheap event insurance is available for your wedding online with no need to talk to an insurance broker.

singing a song in a film, the first point is that if you’re a producer and you have someone singing in a film and it’s actually them singing (not a recording) a song that exists, you need permission to use the composition in the film. If you are recording someone singing a song in a film, then you don’t need to get the rights to use the original recording because you’re making the recording yourself. So, you don’t have to get the master rights from some record label; you’ve created the recording yourself.</p>\n<p>If you’re the producer and you’ve asked your director to tell the singer to add an extra chorus or change a verse around based on the storyline, you’re changing the song. There are two things to consider: <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">1) </span>you may need to get some rights from the writer; if the performer went off script, you need their consent and<span style=\"font-weight: bold;\"> 2) </span>you need the right to change the composition. Whoever controls the original composition, they need to give consent to you changing around the words or the process or the order of the song. Same goes for translation; if the original song is in English and you want it to be in French in your movie, you need consent for the translation. Even if you hire a translator or use Google Translate, you’re not allowed to do that without getting consent for this translation that you have done.</p>\n<p>If you’re using a song in a film that is being performed by someone in the film or TV show, you need to make sure that if there are any changes to that composition, you need to get permission from whoever the composition originated with AND you need consent to use the new intellectual property created by whoever made those changes. However, as I said, if you’re making your own recording of a song, you don’t need to buy the recording of the original song, so that could save some money, but adds some hoops to jump through in terms of getting the proper permission.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">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/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/whats-a-music-exclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">What's a music exclusion?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurring the lines of music infringement law</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O Insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Byron Pascoe's film producer's E&amp;O videos</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

singing a song in a film, the first point is that if you’re a producer and you have someone singing in a film and it’s actually them singing (not a recording) a song that exists, you need permission to use the composition in the film. If you are recording someone singing a song in a film, then you don’t need to get the rights to use the original recording because you’re making the recording yourself. So, you don’t have to get the master rights from some record label; you’ve created the recording yourself.</p>\n<p>If you’re the producer and you’ve asked your director to tell the singer to add an extra chorus or change a verse around based on the storyline, you’re changing the song. There are two things to consider: <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">1) </span>you may need to get some rights from the writer; if the performer went off script, you need their consent and<span style=\"font-weight: bold;\"> 2) </span>you need the right to change the composition. Whoever controls the original composition, they need to give consent to you changing around the words or the process or the order of the song. Same goes for translation; if the original song is in English and you want it to be in French in your movie, you need consent for the translation. Even if you hire a translator or use Google Translate, you’re not allowed to do that without getting consent for this translation that you have done.</p>\n<p>If you’re using a song in a film that is being performed by someone in the film or TV show, you need to make sure that if there are any changes to that composition, you need to get permission from whoever the composition originated with AND you need consent to use the new intellectual property created by whoever made those changes. However, as I said, if you’re making your own recording of a song, you don’t need to buy the recording of the original song, so that could save some money, but adds some hoops to jump through in terms of getting the proper permission.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">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/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/whats-a-music-exclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">What's a music exclusion?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurring the lines of music infringement law</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O Insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Byron Pascoe's film producer's E&amp;O videos</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

However, as I said, if you’re making your own recording of a song, you don’t need to buy the recording of the original song, so that could save some money, but adds some hoops to jump through in terms of getting the proper permission.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">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/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/whats-a-music-exclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">What's a music exclusion?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurring the lines of music infringement law</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O Insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Byron Pascoe's film producer's E&amp;O videos</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

href=\"/articles/top-10-stock-footage-platforms-for-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">stock footage clip</a> or anything is used, that it’s OK to use; that’s just not accurate. I hear a lot, <em>“Well, if I only use 10 seconds of this thing, is it OK?” </em>And my answer always is no. There’s no “10 second rule”; it’s not like a sandwich fell on the floor or that kind of thing.</p>\n<h2>Fair dealing (Canada) and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>So, if there is ANY amount of time being used from an existing song, you have to get permission. With the concept of fair dealing in Canada, there’s a process whereby there are some things that you can use (arguably) that is <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\">copyright infringement</a> but because of the fair dealing rules, you’re allowed to do it. Within music, <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/power-rangers-and-producers-errors-omissions-insurance\">parody</a> is one of the items in which you can try to rely on fair dealing. The thing about fair dealing in Canada (and fair use in the US) is that, sure, it’s part of the <em>Copyright Act</em>, it’s an exemption to copyright infringement, but really, the only way it can be determined definitively that it’s fair dealing in Canada, is if a judge says that it is. And it’s just not practical or financially feasible in most situations to go through the court system to have a judge determine that something is fair dealing.</p>\n<p>When people ask me, <em>“Is this fair dealing or fair use?”</em>, it always depends on the situation but preferably, you would not rely on fair dealing/fair use at all. You don’t want to have to deal with a claim and have to defend it and go to court and make the claim that it’s fair dealing. Fair dealing and fair use are key aspects of the copyright regime in general but it’s not the first thing that you should rely on when putting music into your film. You should be getting permission.</p>\n<p>Whether music is in the background or at the forefront or is the theme song of a TV show or in the credits, it does not change the fact that you need permission. You’re probably going to pay more money if the song is a theme song <em>vs.</em> in the background but it doesn’t matter if it’s one second or 1,000 seconds or in the background or forefront; you need permission.</p>\n<h2>Public domain and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>The concept of public domain is that after a certain amount of time <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/film-production-right-of-publicity\">after an author’s death</a>, the music goes into the public domain, meaning that people in the public can use it without permission. So, if I write a song today, if a producer wants to use it, they need permission from me. But if I had died 100 years ago, you don’t need permission. Now the question is, when does music go into the public domain? Currently, in Canada, it’s 70 years after January 1<sup>st</sup> the year after the author has died. I work a lot in the area of <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/the-evolution-of-clearances-for-animated-programming\">kids’ animation productions</a> and in those situations, you have people composing music that may be based on music in the public domain. Part of my role is to establish whether or not the music for which someone is basing their new song on is in the public domain. If a composition is in the public domain, then if you’re creating a new version of it, you don’t need permission from anybody. If a song may or may not be in the public domain, you need to research whether or not it’s in the public domain, and if it’s not, you need to get permission from whoever controls that composition.</p>\n<p>There’s a lot of music in the public domain and people who have made adaptations and arrangements of music in the public domain, and if you as a producer want to use a composition that is an arrangement of something in the public domain, you need permission from whoever arranged that public domain work. If your composer wants to create a score that’s allegedly based on a public domain work, then it’s important to clarify whether it’s really in the public domain. There are different rules about public domain in different parts of the world; Canada and the US have a similar structure now.</p>\n<p>A lot of holiday and Christmas songs are in the public domain; that’s kind of where public domain comes up a lot in productions (to know whether a certain jingle is in the public domain or not). Public domain is an important part of the music ecosystem with film productions and it’s important to clarify that in Canada, the US and beyond, that something <em>is actually in</em> the public domain.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O considerations for US-based vs. Canada-based producers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/who-can-give-consent-to-have-music-be-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Who can give consent to have music in a film?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">Fair use and E&amp;O insurance for filmmakers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

I hear a lot, <em>“Well, if I only use 10 seconds of this thing, is it OK?” </em>And my answer always is no. There’s no “10 second rule”; it’s not like a sandwich fell on the floor or that kind of thing.</p>\n<h2>Fair dealing (Canada) and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>So, if there is ANY amount of time being used from an existing song, you have to get permission. With the concept of fair dealing in Canada, there’s a process whereby there are some things that you can use (arguably) that is <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\">copyright infringement</a> but because of the fair dealing rules, you’re allowed to do it. Within music, <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/power-rangers-and-producers-errors-omissions-insurance\">parody</a> is one of the items in which you can try to rely on fair dealing. The thing about fair dealing in Canada (and fair use in the US) is that, sure, it’s part of the <em>Copyright Act</em>, it’s an exemption to copyright infringement, but really, the only way it can be determined definitively that it’s fair dealing in Canada, is if a judge says that it is. And it’s just not practical or financially feasible in most situations to go through the court system to have a judge determine that something is fair dealing.</p>\n<p>When people ask me, <em>“Is this fair dealing or fair use?”</em>, it always depends on the situation but preferably, you would not rely on fair dealing/fair use at all. You don’t want to have to deal with a claim and have to defend it and go to court and make the claim that it’s fair dealing. Fair dealing and fair use are key aspects of the copyright regime in general but it’s not the first thing that you should rely on when putting music into your film. You should be getting permission.</p>\n<p>Whether music is in the background or at the forefront or is the theme song of a TV show or in the credits, it does not change the fact that you need permission. You’re probably going to pay more money if the song is a theme song <em>vs.</em> in the background but it doesn’t matter if it’s one second or 1,000 seconds or in the background or forefront; you need permission.</p>\n<h2>Public domain and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>The concept of public domain is that after a certain amount of time <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/film-production-right-of-publicity\">after an author’s death</a>, the music goes into the public domain, meaning that people in the public can use it without permission. So, if I write a song today, if a producer wants to use it, they need permission from me. But if I had died 100 years ago, you don’t need permission. Now the question is, when does music go into the public domain? Currently, in Canada, it’s 70 years after January 1<sup>st</sup> the year after the author has died. I work a lot in the area of <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/the-evolution-of-clearances-for-animated-programming\">kids’ animation productions</a> and in those situations, you have people composing music that may be based on music in the public domain. Part of my role is to establish whether or not the music for which someone is basing their new song on is in the public domain. If a composition is in the public domain, then if you’re creating a new version of it, you don’t need permission from anybody. If a song may or may not be in the public domain, you need to research whether or not it’s in the public domain, and if it’s not, you need to get permission from whoever controls that composition.</p>\n<p>There’s a lot of music in the public domain and people who have made adaptations and arrangements of music in the public domain, and if you as a producer want to use a composition that is an arrangement of something in the public domain, you need permission from whoever arranged that public domain work. If your composer wants to create a score that’s allegedly based on a public domain work, then it’s important to clarify whether it’s really in the public domain. There are different rules about public domain in different parts of the world; Canada and the US have a similar structure now.</p>\n<p>A lot of holiday and Christmas songs are in the public domain; that’s kind of where public domain comes up a lot in productions (to know whether a certain jingle is in the public domain or not). Public domain is an important part of the music ecosystem with film productions and it’s important to clarify that in Canada, the US and beyond, that something <em>is actually in</em> the public domain.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O considerations for US-based vs. Canada-based producers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/who-can-give-consent-to-have-music-be-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Who can give consent to have music in a film?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">Fair use and E&amp;O insurance for filmmakers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

Now the question is, when does music go into the public domain? Currently, in Canada, it’s 70 years after January 1<sup>st</sup> the year after the author has died. I work a lot in the area of <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/the-evolution-of-clearances-for-animated-programming\">kids’ animation productions</a> and in those situations, you have people composing music that may be based on music in the public domain. Part of my role is to establish whether or not the music for which someone is basing their new song on is in the public domain. If a composition is in the public domain, then if you’re creating a new version of it, you don’t need permission from anybody. If a song may or may not be in the public domain, you need to research whether or not it’s in the public domain, and if it’s not, you need to get permission from whoever controls that composition.</p>\n<p>There’s a lot of music in the public domain and people who have made adaptations and arrangements of music in the public domain, and if you as a producer want to use a composition that is an arrangement of something in the public domain, you need permission from whoever arranged that public domain work. If your composer wants to create a score that’s allegedly based on a public domain work, then it’s important to clarify whether it’s really in the public domain. There are different rules about public domain in different parts of the world; Canada and the US have a similar structure now.</p>\n<p>A lot of holiday and Christmas songs are in the public domain; that’s kind of where public domain comes up a lot in productions (to know whether a certain jingle is in the public domain or not). Public domain is an important part of the music ecosystem with film productions and it’s important to clarify that in Canada, the US and beyond, that something <em>is actually in</em> the public domain.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O considerations for US-based vs. Canada-based producers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/who-can-give-consent-to-have-music-be-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Who can give consent to have music in a film?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">Fair use and E&amp;O insurance for filmmakers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

that’s just not accurate. I hear a lot, <em>“Well, if I only use 10 seconds of this thing, is it OK?” </em>And my answer always is no. There’s no “10 second rule”; it’s not like a sandwich fell on the floor or that kind of thing.</p>\n<h2>Fair dealing (Canada) and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>So, if there is ANY amount of time being used from an existing song, you have to get permission. With the concept of fair dealing in Canada, there’s a process whereby there are some things that you can use (arguably) that is <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\">copyright infringement</a> but because of the fair dealing rules, you’re allowed to do it. Within music, <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/power-rangers-and-producers-errors-omissions-insurance\">parody</a> is one of the items in which you can try to rely on fair dealing. The thing about fair dealing in Canada (and fair use in the US) is that, sure, it’s part of the <em>Copyright Act</em>, it’s an exemption to copyright infringement, but really, the only way it can be determined definitively that it’s fair dealing in Canada, is if a judge says that it is. And it’s just not practical or financially feasible in most situations to go through the court system to have a judge determine that something is fair dealing.</p>\n<p>When people ask me, <em>“Is this fair dealing or fair use?”</em>, it always depends on the situation but preferably, you would not rely on fair dealing/fair use at all. You don’t want to have to deal with a claim and have to defend it and go to court and make the claim that it’s fair dealing. Fair dealing and fair use are key aspects of the copyright regime in general but it’s not the first thing that you should rely on when putting music into your film. You should be getting permission.</p>\n<p>Whether music is in the background or at the forefront or is the theme song of a TV show or in the credits, it does not change the fact that you need permission. You’re probably going to pay more money if the song is a theme song <em>vs.</em> in the background but it doesn’t matter if it’s one second or 1,000 seconds or in the background or forefront; you need permission.</p>\n<h2>Public domain and music in film productions</h2>\n<p>The concept of public domain is that after a certain amount of time <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/film-production-right-of-publicity\">after an author’s death</a>, the music goes into the public domain, meaning that people in the public can use it without permission. So, if I write a song today, if a producer wants to use it, they need permission from me. But if I had died 100 years ago, you don’t need permission. Now the question is, when does music go into the public domain? Currently, in Canada, it’s 70 years after January 1<sup>st</sup> the year after the author has died. I work a lot in the area of <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/the-evolution-of-clearances-for-animated-programming\">kids’ animation productions</a> and in those situations, you have people composing music that may be based on music in the public domain. Part of my role is to establish whether or not the music for which someone is basing their new song on is in the public domain. If a composition is in the public domain, then if you’re creating a new version of it, you don’t need permission from anybody. If a song may or may not be in the public domain, you need to research whether or not it’s in the public domain, and if it’s not, you need to get permission from whoever controls that composition.</p>\n<p>There’s a lot of music in the public domain and people who have made adaptations and arrangements of music in the public domain, and if you as a producer want to use a composition that is an arrangement of something in the public domain, you need permission from whoever arranged that public domain work. If your composer wants to create a score that’s allegedly based on a public domain work, then it’s important to clarify whether it’s really in the public domain. There are different rules about public domain in different parts of the world; Canada and the US have a similar structure now.</p>\n<p>A lot of holiday and Christmas songs are in the public domain; that’s kind of where public domain comes up a lot in productions (to know whether a certain jingle is in the public domain or not). Public domain is an important part of the music ecosystem with film productions and it’s important to clarify that in Canada, the US and beyond, that something <em>is actually in</em> the public domain.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\"noopener\">E&amp;O considerations for US-based vs. Canada-based producers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/who-can-give-consent-to-have-music-be-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Who can give consent to have music in a film?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\"noopener\">Fair use and E&amp;O insurance for filmmakers</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

music in film. Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

consent to have music in film. Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

there’s also cast insurance claims and they can be some of the biggest claims that a project can incur. One of the examples that I saw on the Front Row blog was <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/example-of-a-cast-insurance-claim\">when Heath Ledger died</a> during <em>The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus</em> (2009), which would have been before you joined Front Row. But that had to be recast with new actors and all of the fallout that happens from something like that and the insurance followed as well.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike Groner</strong>: I believe that is still the largest cast claim in Canada for a Canadian film.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: And I do know the largest in the US was <em>The Fast and the Furious</em> franchise, which was $50 million, and that was <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/how-to-call-a-wrap-on-top-film-insurance-claims\">Paul Walker when he passed away</a>, so a huge amount of money. Big losses to do stuff like that.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: The cast insurance part of the production package is without a doubt your biggest exposure on any film. You can just imagine the costs associated with replacing an actor midway if they got injured or died, or even if <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/articles/bid/25404/insurance-for-body-parts\">an actor breaks a leg</a>, and you have to shut down for two days, significant costs are being bled from the production company for holding locations, equipment, you still have to carry your cast and crew.</p>\n<p>Those are hundreds of thousands of dollars a day in costs that are going to be spent whether you’re able to film or not.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: I read a couple stories, one was about Brad Pitt in <em><a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_(1995_film)\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Se7en</a></em> (1995), and I guess when he did a scene and hit the car, he actually hurt himself and they just kept him in a sling anyway. So, he got hurt in the movie but he also got hurt in real life and I feel like they worked around it on purpose, so it’s possible to “take an injury in” and use it as part of the story.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: And there’s also the situation of actor availability. For someone like Pitt, who may have three other projects lined up, if they lost him for a week while his arm was getting better, they may not be able to finish their project for six months after his next project is done.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: And it’s funny when you watch it as an audience member, you don’t even care, but you know the people who were working on that stuff care, they had a lot of sleepless nights.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: It’s not too much different than writing in a pregnancy on a TV show or movie. These things happen and in the case of Brad Pitt injuring himself, that’s insurable, but you cannot really insure against someone getting pregnant; it’s not an injury.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: That’s interesting because I know actors sign contracts that they won’t do certain things but that’s not necessarily related to film production insurance.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: Well, we require actors, actresses and the director – anyone who is going to be insured as a cast member on a film – <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/articles/bid/61710/cast-insurance-5-reasons-to-use-an-approved-cast-doctor\">they have to undergo a physical</a>. And as part of that physical, they do warrant that they’re not going to jump off buildings, go scuba diving, ride a motorcycle, etc. Basically, we want them in a bubble for the next six weeks.</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/most-common-film-insurance-claims\" rel=\"noopener\">Common Film Insurance Claims</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/civil-authority-coverage-explained\" rel=\"noopener\">Film Production Civil Authority Coverage Explained</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><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: 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.

But that had to be recast with new actors and all of the fallout that happens from something like that and the insurance followed as well.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike Groner</strong>: I believe that is still the largest cast claim in Canada for a Canadian film.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: And I do know the largest in the US was <em>The Fast and the Furious</em> franchise, which was $50 million, and that was <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/how-to-call-a-wrap-on-top-film-insurance-claims\">Paul Walker when he passed away</a>, so a huge amount of money. Big losses to do stuff like that.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: The cast insurance part of the production package is without a doubt your biggest exposure on any film. You can just imagine the costs associated with replacing an actor midway if they got injured or died, or even if <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/articles/bid/25404/insurance-for-body-parts\">an actor breaks a leg</a>, and you have to shut down for two days, significant costs are being bled from the production company for holding locations, equipment, you still have to carry your cast and crew.</p>\n<p>Those are hundreds of thousands of dollars a day in costs that are going to be spent whether you’re able to film or not.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: I read a couple stories, one was about Brad Pitt in <em><a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_(1995_film)\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Se7en</a></em> (1995), and I guess when he did a scene and hit the car, he actually hurt himself and they just kept him in a sling anyway. So, he got hurt in the movie but he also got hurt in real life and I feel like they worked around it on purpose, so it’s possible to “take an injury in” and use it as part of the story.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: And there’s also the situation of actor availability. For someone like Pitt, who may have three other projects lined up, if they lost him for a week while his arm was getting better, they may not be able to finish their project for six months after his next project is done.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: And it’s funny when you watch it as an audience member, you don’t even care, but you know the people who were working on that stuff care, they had a lot of sleepless nights.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: It’s not too much different than writing in a pregnancy on a TV show or movie. These things happen and in the case of Brad Pitt injuring himself, that’s insurable, but you cannot really insure against someone getting pregnant; it’s not an injury.</p>\n<p><strong>Colby</strong>: That’s interesting because I know actors sign contracts that they won’t do certain things but that’s not necessarily related to film production insurance.</p>\n<p><strong>Mike</strong>: Well, we require actors, actresses and the director – anyone who is going to be insured as a cast member on a film – <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/articles/bid/61710/cast-insurance-5-reasons-to-use-an-approved-cast-doctor\">they have to undergo a physical</a>.

This insures your key cast members or your director if they get sick, injured or die. It doesn’t cover workers compensation and it doesn’t protect the artists themselves; what it’s doing is protecting the production company for expenses that the company would incur if they had to do a reshoot or shut down production to wait for that artist or director to get better. Or, in severe cases where maybe someone dies, or they’re not going to get better quick enough for the production to get done, it would cover the cost to go back and reshoot with a new artist.</p>\n<p>Some of the big examples of this would be <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/example-of-a-cast-insurance-claim\">Heath Ledger on <em>The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus</em></a><em> </em>(2009) or <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/how-to-call-a-wrap-on-top-film-insurance-claims\">Paul Walker dying</a> during one of the episodes of the <em>Fast &amp; Furious</em> films and that’s actually the largest cast claim in history; upwards of $50 million.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/film-production-insurance\">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/24987/film-production-insurance-why-it-is-needed\" rel=\"noopener\">Film Insurance: Why is it Needed?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/entertainment-insurance-package-policy\" rel=\"noopener\">Entertainment Package Policy Explained</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">Content courtesy of the <a href=\"https://cinevic.buzzsprout.com\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">CineVic podcast</a></span></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.

So, sometimes you need to have E&amp;O well before you know what music is going to be in your film and before you have consent from the music owners to use the music.</p>\n<!--more-->\n<p>For example: if someone is getting funding from an organization and they require that you have an E&amp;O insurance policy well before production, you can get E&amp;O insurance, but the music is not included yet in the policy. So, later on, once there is music chosen and the entertainment lawyer has reviewed everything, what the lawyer would do is say, months later: “now the music has been chosen, there are agreements in place, I’ve reviewed everything and I’m letting you know [insurance company lawyer] that the music has now been cleared.”</p>\n<p>So, I would tell the lawyer for the insurer and the lawyer for the insurer would tell the insurance broker and then the insurer would say, “OK, we are removing the music exclusion. Music is now included [in the E&amp;O policy].”</p>\n<p>It’s oftentimes the case when music is excluded – not because there’s an issue with the song – but simply because we haven’t obtained permission yet. So, it’s OK to have a music exclusion early on but you don’t want to have a music exclusion when you’re ready for your production to actually be exploited.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">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/24691/steps-to-obtain-errors-and-ommissions-insurance-for-films\" rel=\"noopener\">Steps to obtaining producer's E&amp;O insurance</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/who-can-give-consent-to-have-music-be-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Who can give consent to have music in a film?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/how-does-socan-play-a-role-in-helping-a-film-producer\" rel=\"noopener\">How can SOCAN help a film producer?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.
