It is critical that all authors understand whether or not they own the rights to their written work, as this can greatly impact the money to potentially be made. As Film Track Director of Sales, Andrea Adams, explains, in most cases authors do own the rights, unless they've sold the rights or have signed an agreement to have it optioned for film or television. She strongly recommends that authors hire a lawyer when reviewing any type of contracts related to their work and if an author has multiple projects that he or she is trying to manage, consider using a software to track the rights for the material. Knowing your rights will empower you to make decisions that will ultimately drive revenue.
