Will someone steal my TV idea?
The number one question I always hear is “Will someone steal my TV idea?” I’ve thought that too.
But there’s a webinar coming up February 28th put together by two great industry insiders I know that pretty much answers everything you or I would need to know about how to protect our ideas.
•Can a network just take my idea and do it without me?
•Is a Submission Release Form a license to steal?
•The truth behind stories of stolen TV ideas
•What can or can’t I do to protect my idea
•How safe is my title?•Copyright protection myths
•Will my paranoia destroy my pitch or sabotage my chances?
•Are my characters at risk, too?
•Is a WGA registration enough protection?
They’ve got a great line up of expert interviews: Patric Verrone, the PRESIDENT of the Writer’s Guild: Marc Zicree, who wrote for Star Trek and Babylon 5; Joel Andryc, who’s an executive Saban; and Linda Simensky, who’s a senior vice president at PBS Kids.Plus the event is hosted by Mark and Jeanne Simon, founders of http://www.SellYourTvConceptNow.com who have about 4,500 credits between them and more than 25 years each in the industry.
