The title of this article is simply, "9 Copyright Laws Every Video Producer Should Know."  Two of the enumerated subjects has nothing to do with copyright law.  Releases, and Recording Location, relate to privacy principles and rights of publicity.  That a law firm prepared this article is a bad advertisement for their services...

Copyright!!

Protecting your work, no matter how small or large, is essential to your success and happiness. Everyday, some tries to copy your hard work and as Judge Judy stated one, if you don't have it in writing then you don't have it! Why should you not get respect by not having someone pay for it; what's the reason for all that hard work and all those training sessions and schools. If your work is important to you copyright...live long and prosper!

Is a copyright notice required on works still in progress and only being reviewed for factuality and clarity by one or more people appearing in the material? 

copyright etc.

When I clicked on this article I was hoping to see something about Creative Commons included. Most of my work is for nonprofits looking for recognition and advertisement. I want them or anyone else who would like to use and disperse the information to have it easily useable without worry about getting my written permission to use it, much less my having to answer those requests in writing. C.C. protects the creator from stealing to copyright and from misuse, requiring the user to license under the same C.C. level. It is a boon for those of us who simply want to share but still maintain ownership.

Soundstripe

Just wanted to recommend a site that has saved me a LOT of time as far as music selection.

As a fellow filmmaker, I would like to recommend Soundstripe. Soundstripe is currently offering a 10% discount through my referral link:

http://soundstripe.grsm.io/ethanloomis

Just type in the code STRIPE10 at checkout to receive this discount which is good for the yearly price; save a lot of money that way! This website will save you so much time in the long run, you won't be searching for music for your video projects anymore. Soundstripe was a HUGE time saver for me. I can't rave about it enough. They understand the film industry and want to come alongside filmmakers to provide great audio/music tracks for your projects.
For a small monthly or yearly fee ($15/month or $135/year) you can gain unlimited access to the ENTIRE Soundstripe library, no more fees beyond that. You can sort by genre, mood, pace, duration, instrument and more. The quality of music on their website is better than most websites that I've seen; I use their music in my videos all the time. Anyways, hope this is helpful!
