SWA has been receiving numerous complaints about the writer-contracts that our members are being asked to sign by film and TV producers.
Such, and many more, tactics are being used, which are causing distress and confusion for Writers.
Therefore, all writers need to know
What is a lawful and fair writer’s contract? What should be the essential clauses in it?
What are your rights as per Copyright Law?
What does Contract Law say about such contracts?
Who is entitled to royalties, and from where?
How to ensure that your fee, your credit, your royalty and other rights are protected?
What is your negotiation leverage when dealing with a contract? How can SWA help you? When there is a breach of contract, what should you do?
To guide you about all such issues, SWA presents a workshop on film and TV writers's legal rights
