It’s been a decade since the Terms of Trade model came into force in the UK, and while many (if not all) U.S. prodcos would eagerly embrace this model and retain IP ownership, the reality is that the “work for hire” model rules the roost in the Land of the Free. Here, you’ll hear from executives about the impact the Terms have had on the content industry and creativity in the UK. You’ll also hear from UK producers who have opted to embrace the realities of producing in the U.S. and their reasons for doing so, as well as U.S. producers looking to explore partnerships that will enable them to keep a bigger slice of the pie.
