Post by Halie0201 »

Hello,

For a movie, TV series or a similar camera shooting work, who owns the copyright? The producer or director? If there is a no signed agreement, who will get the copyright of the movie? Does an actor or an actress own the copyright of their of performance? Or the copyright will automatically belong to the producer even without a copyright transferring document?
