Hey all,

I was recently drafting my personal contract which I was taking from Imagos template contract for DPs. Here is the template: https://www.imago.or...on.22.01.08.pdf
.
In article 7.2, its speaks to Copyright Collective Socities. I understand the purpose of these copyright collectives, but after some searching, did not find any socities of note in America that cover motion picture professionals.

Since this is from Imago, are these Socities more common in Europe than America? Does anyone have any more info on joining a Copyright collective?

In the US you typically make a work for hire and therefore have no copyright to the image what-so-ever once you've been paid.
