BSM Legal Seminar: Use of original works in film production
- Tue, 11 October, 11:00-12:00 | Day 4
- Event Room B
- #IP Business
Films are sometimes made based on original screenplays, but they’re also often made from original works such as webtoons, web novels, and literary works using publication rights contracts. Alongside the country’s movies, South Korean webtoons, web novels, and other original works have also received favorable reviews around the world, and this has resulted in increased interest in and demand for the publication rights to those original works. This seminar will take a look at what legal issues these contracts present, what reasonable solutions exist for those issues, and what the future looks like from a lawyer’s perspective.
