Rights and Royalties

What are rights?

When applying for rights, you are asking for authority to use copyrighted content from the creator. In theatre and in this guide, we are specifically talking about performance rights. If you would like to perform something that has been created by someone else, you need to pay for the content and get the approval of the creator. By disregarding payment and/or approval of the use of copyrighted content, you are not only breaking the law, but you are overlooking artistic morals
