: I want to make wanna make a short movie or a film of study based on a novel written by Ethan Coen. What kind of legal arguments could I use to convince this amazing director that this film of study is part of what Us legislation call a "fair use"?? I do not have the budget to pay lots of copyright beacuse this short movie is part of my studies
: Thanks for your help !!
Dear French Copyright Girl,
Without taking professional responsibility for my thoughts, there is very much that you can do as long as you don't copy Coen's works or mode of expression.
The Wind Done Gone, has survived the first test from the Margaret Mitchell Estate. I you are well advised you may be able to do and avoid litigation.
