Writers and filmmakers need to understand their legal rights and how to defend themselves from those who may seek to exploit them or falsely claim their rights have been infringed.

In the event of a dispute, participants learn what remedies are available to enforce their rights.

Invasion of privacy
Protecting your stories and avoiding being sued when portraying others
