Title: Licence protection before the fact
Post by Max Imus on Feb 5th, 2005, 9:31pm
I am too much a newbie here to even be sure I am in the right forum, but I hope somebody can tell me something.
Lets say I write a screenplay which creates some very marketable action figures--not just barbies, but actual character/toys....like I invented Transformers, let's say.
So now I have to sell the script, which means showing it to people.   But I also want a piece of the toy action, so I might be talking to Mattel or somebody.  
Obviously they read the script and they have knowlege of the new toy sensation.  
So, how do I protect myself on something like this?
