    Fair Use in Filmmaking: Counseling Clients About Using Footage, Music or Art in Film Projects
    with special access to The GRAMMY Museum
    [1.5 hours California MCLE credit available*]


    Program Description:

    Join CLA, UC Irvine Law professor Jack Lerner, and members of the UCI Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic for a seminar that explores the fair use of music, film, and other artistic works. Although filmmakers license most music, film clips, or art for use in their projects, they can make use of the fair use doctrine more often than they might know. In this program, Professor Lerner will delve into the practical applications of fair use, highlight the DMCA exemptions that allow documentary filmmakers to obtain footage from DVDs and online media, and go through the process of evaluating fair use. Professor Lerner will also examine court cases in which fair use was an issue, and how fair use has become more reliable and predictable over time. Finally, the program will examine issues that arise when counseling clients about these topics.

    This seminar is designed for an attorney audience but all members of the community are welcome. The MCLE portion of the evening will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. The GRAMMY Museum exhibitions will be open to registrants starting at 6:00 p.m.

    This event is co-sponsored by the UCI Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic, with special thanks to clinic students Nathan Lafontaine and Garry Trinh for their assistance in preparing for and hosting the event. To learn more about the clinic, visit http://law.uci.edu/ipat.

    Presenter:

    Jack I. Lerner is Assistant Clinical Professor of Law at the UC Irvine School of Law and Director of the UCI Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic, where law students work to support innovation and creative expression in the digital age through a range of counseling, research, and advocacy services. Professor Lerner received a B.A. from the University of Kansas and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. Professor Lerner is a nationally known expert on fair use; he and his students regularly advocate on behalf of documentary and independent filmmakers in amicus briefs and regulatory proceedings, and counsel and represent filmmakers and others on fair use issues. Professor Lerner served on the Legal Advisory Board for the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Scholarly Research in Communication, and the Set of Principles in Fair Use for Journalism.

    Special Author Event!

    How to Evaluate Yourself & Your Book Idea for Success 
    with Nina Amir

    Admission price includes a signed copy of the new book! 

    Nina Amir will autograph copies of your book following the Q&A session.


    The average book today sells only about 250 copies a year, 3,000 in its lifetime. Improve your odds of becoming a successful author by producing a business plan for your book before you write a word. As you do, you’ll develop an Author Attitude and learn how to evaluate your ideas and yourself through the same lens used by an acquisitions editor. You also develop a career plan to help you reach your destination: successful authorship.

    Learn how to determine if your book is not only a great creative idea but also marketable productundefineda viable business ventureundefinedas you go through the Author Training Process. It’s the foundation for creating books that sellundefinedto publishers and to readers! This evaluation tool helps you determine if your book is ready to go to marketundefinedto be shopped to agents, publishers or readersundefinedand if you are ready to become an author.

    This is NOT a session on how to write a book proposal (but you’ll learn a lot about it). This IS a session about how to use the parts of a book proposal as a process to train yourself to see both the creative and business aspects of writing and publishing a book and creating a business plan for a book. This session is appropriate for fiction writers and for nonfiction writers.

    (Based on Nina Amir’s new book, The Author Training Manual, Writer’s Digest Books, Feb. 2014.)

    Session takeaways:
    • Learn how to discover if your book idea is marketable.
    • Find out how to decide if you are cut out to write and market a successful bookundefinedif you are an attractive publishing partner or savvy indie publisher.
    • Discover what publishers and readers want.
    • Learn how to produce a successful book.
    • Take the nine steps in the “proposal process.”
    • See through an acquisitions editor’s eyes.
    • Find out why you shouldn’t write your book as soon as you get the idea.
    • Learn how to be the business partner a publisher seeks.
    • See the big picture of your career.
    • Generate ideas for branding yourself and building a business around your book.
    Nina Amir, the bestselling author of How to Blog a Book and The Author Training Manual, is a speaker, a blogger, and an author, book, and blog-to-book coach. Known as the Inspiration to Creation Coach, she helps creative people combine their passion and purpose so they move from idea to inspired action and positively and meaningfully impact the world as writers, bloggers, authorpreneurs, and blogpreneurs. 

    Some of Nina’s clients have sold 300,000+ copies of their books, landed deals with major publishing houses and created thriving businesses around their books. She is the founder of National Nonfiction Writing Month, aka the Write Nonfiction in November Challenge, and the Nonfiction Writers’ University.
