– Use a business model for your purchase agreement. A purchase agreement usually contains a clause that protects the manufacturer from a situation in which the contract expires while the manufacturer is in the middle of negotiations with a potential buyer, which results in an agreement on the property with the owner, but does not benefit the builder because of the expiry of the agreement. Such a clause would automatically extend the duration of a period during which the builder is in valid negotiation with a potential buyer. The owner may insist on a cap for this extended period, so that it is not overly extended. A manufacturer should also pay attention to the scenario in which the manufacturer does the work of the legs to provide the IP address to a buyer, but the owner does not then enter into a contract with the same buyer until after the expiry of the sales contract. A language may be added prohibiting the owner, for a specified period after the expiry of the agreement, from entering into a contract with a buyer to whom the manufacturer has previously submitted the period of investigation, unless the manufacturer is attached. Such a clause is often accepted, namely that an agreement can be reached without the manufacturer`s commitment if the property has been substantially modified since its inception. If, at the expiry of the agreement, substantial changes have been made to the investigation period or if influential talent is attached to the project, the project`s market capacity may improve and justify why an agreement was not reached until after the manufacturer`s departure. As noted above, the sale agreement generally provides that the author retains 100% of the ownership of all property rights, unless he enters into a development contract with a buyer.

Despite this property, a rare but serious trap may arise for the writer, if the producer is allowed to add or subtract material during the lifetime. Such changes may simply consist of giving a few notes, proposing some concepts or making minor adjustments. Nevertheless, I have witnessed evil situations where a bitter producer, unhappy that the author did not extend his purchase period or accepted a proposed agreement, then claimed that the minor modifications she had made to the property transformed the property into a "common work" under American copyright, making it a co-owner of the copyright with common control over the sale of the property. Although this happens in scenarios, it is more common when the purchased property is a TV series format, as these formats are fairly fluid and are often revised during the term. The problem may arise through option agreements, but it is much more likely that it arises in trade agreements where the relationship between the author and the producer is often not clearly defined. It is essential that the writer protect himself from this catastrophe. One possibility is to provide in the contract: (a) that the producer does not have the right to modify or develop the land in one way or another, unless there is a separate written agreement with the author; and (b) that the services provided by the manufacturer under U.S. copyright, specifically ordered by the author for use in a film or other audiovisual works, are for rent and that, therefore, the author is the exclusive author and owner of all results and revenues of services provided by the manufacturer, including, but without restriction, , materials produced by the producer and copyrights as well as extensions and extensions. In this way, if the producer makes changes, the author will own them. The purchase agreement should also provide that, at the end of the validity period, the manufacturer no longer has the right to purchase ownership of the parties or to use or disseminate elements of the property for any purpose and to immediately return to the author all physical materials that respect the property in their possession.
