    Certificate of Authorship of Screenplay


    You've commissioned an original screenplay from a writer. Now get the writer to sign this Certificate of Authorship. The screenwriter certifies that:

    • The screenplay was written as a work made for hire commissioned by the producer, and that the producer is deemed to be the author of the work.
    • The work is original and not in the public domain, has not been adapted and does not violate or infringe upon any other person's statutory or common law rights.
    • The producer owns all right and title to the screenplay, and has the right to make any changes to the material, and the writer waives all moral rights (”droit moral”).
    • The writer will not make any claims or demands against any assignee or successor in interest of the producer.
    • The writer will have no right to enjoin or restrain the distribution or exploitation of any motion picture or other material based on the screenplay.

    The Certificate of Authorship of Screenplay form is an important part of the documentation you need to establish your rights to the material. Download it for your production forms library.
