I want to adapt this film or comic; what should I do?

Ignacio Monter

In the frame of “Is the Novel Always Better?”, Professional session on literary adaptations.

During the creative process, legal questions often arise that can get in the way. In this practical session, the lawyer for Guionistes Associats de Catalunya (Associated Scriptwriters of Catalonia) answers some common questions about adaptations. What should I do if I want to adapt a novel? How can I find out if the rights have been sold? Should the contract be permanent or for a limited period? What is copyright? When does copyright expire? Are some works excluded from copyright?

With Ignacio Monter (lawyer for GAC).
