Pre-Broadcast Review, Fair Use & Clearance

CDAS attorneys utilize their deep breadth and knowledge of media law, including defamation, privacy, newsgathering, copyright, and related rights to provide the firm’s entertainment, media, and technology clients with pre-publication and pre-broadcast review of productions and projects across all mediums and formats including podcasts, documentaries, feature films, series, broadcasts, and traditional media publications.

We review client’s projects for fair use and clearance issues and not only provide them with a fair use opinion letter as required for production insurance, but help clients navigate the ever-evolving fair use waters and advise clients on best practices in content licensing. The firm’s lawyers are well-known and respected in the field, holding leadership positions with the ABA, the Copyright Society of the USA, and the MLRC. Clients rely on our team as trusted advisers, who work with them to produce engaging works while reducing risks of potential claims.
