I’ll be speaking at The Great American PitchFest, June 26th!

I’m honored to have been asked to speak about the law and business of screenwriting at The Great American PitchFest in Los Angeles, this Saturday, June 26th.


I’ll be covering screenwriting topics that include: what is copyright protectable material, WGA versus U.S. Copyright registration, when a writer needs life rights or story rights, pre-pitch/pre-submission hold harmless agreements and a discussion of option/sale agreements.

Beyond my presentation, the PitchFest has a host of excellent lectures for screenwriters, as well as the opportunity to pitch to established production companies, managers and agents. An excellent opportunity for aspiring screenwriters.

I hope to see you there!
