Intellectual Property Rights for films are designed to protect the creative inventions in filmmaking as well as the creativity of filmmakers and artists. These rights involve each stage of a filmmaker's journey, from the script to the screen. Knowing these rights will protect them against copyright infringement and piracy, allowing them to optimize monetization and licensing opportunities especially with the current shift on the film distribution where there have been several platforms such as movie theaters, online streaming sites, pay television and free television, among others.
