: An old online friend wrote a screenplay about two years ago and posted it at an internet forum we used to use for chatting. I want to make it into a film, and possibly submit it to a small film festival. What do I have to do so that I can make this dream a reality? Should I email the author directly and ask permission, or is there a contract of some sort we need to work out? I've tried looking up information on intellectual property law, but can't find anything that addresses my particular situation.
