IFH 119: Ask Alex – E&O Insurance, Music Rights and Copyright Oh My!

E&O Insurance, Music Rights, and Copyright Oh My!

So after last week’s huge success of the “Ask Alex” segment, I decided to bring it back this week. The IFH Tribe filled my inbox with tons of amazing questions, which I’ll try to cover in future episodes.

If  you have a question that you would like for me to answer on a future episode of the podcast just email them to [email protected] and I’ll do my best to answer them. This week we have a bunch of question from tribe member Jake from Australia.

Here are the questions I answered in this week’s podcast:

  • What happens if I’m shooting guerrilla style and accidentally catch a sign in the background or someone is wearing a brand logo in a shot? 
  • What is E&O Insurance (Errors and Ommissions) exactly?
  • How does E&O Insurance work?
  • Where are the best deals for E&O Insurance? 
  • What do you do if you want to use Licensed Music?
  • What things might arise if using a track (or tracks)? 
  • What can copyrighting your film cost you?
