Movie Rights

Copyright laws are instituted as way to protect intellectual property and their respective creators or owners. Copyright laws related to motion pictures will provide the same protection that is granted to all other forms of intellectual property. However, copyright laws related to motion pictures have been the focus in recent years, as well as those related to downloadable media, particularly music.

Movie rights have been attacked by forms of piracy in which copyright laws are violated through the illegal copying of movies from the various media sources and downloading movies from the internet. Movie rights are protected under the Federal Copyright Act of the United States Code which, among various rights, grants the owners of movie rights sole ownership over their creations, as well as the right to control and regulate their use.
