The Visual Arts

TV, Film,
and Screenplays

Copyright for your eyes. When we look at copyright in the visual domain, we see movies, television shows, photographs, sculptures, and artwork. We also see things that form the basis for such works, such as screenplays, teleplays, and blueprints. The hot issue here - trying to mix all of the above without infringing someone's copyright.
