Clearance on TV Shows

In television, there are a lot of unsung heros, often working in the deep background to keep the show safe.  The Clearance Coordinator on a show is the person who gets the ‘low-down’ from Legal on what the Art Department and the Writers can and cannot (or should not) legally do.  Sometimes there is leeway, sometimes legal misses something. Or, sometimes people copy things they just shouldn’t copy…

It’s astounding how expensive it can be if you get it wrong! See the link below for information on how the new dark reboot of Sabrina got too close to a real copyright and suffered.
