A movie theater owner says he wants to get creative with his own TV shows and other entertainment products that could be copyrighted.
The owner, who has a business with several TV and film companies, told CNNMoney that he wants customers to understand that he doesn’t make money on his shows.
The business is licensed from a company that’s been making them for decades, but the licenses are set to expire in a few years, said the owner, Michael V. Stuckey, in an interview with CNNMoney.
“I want to have a unique and exclusive relationship with them, so if I can create an IP-based product that’s worth $10,000 to $15,000 a pop, then I can do it for a couple of years and sell it.”
Stuckeys business is called Vip Entertainment, which specializes in selling “premium” entertainment items, including music videos, music, films, books and music videos.
Vip is owned by CBS and the TV network Showtime.
In a recent interview with Business Insider, Stucks company said it has received requests for licensees’ logos, names, dates and locations from around the world.
“We’ve received multiple requests to use our company’s logo, and we are pleased to do so,” the company said in a statement.
CBS, Showtime and Vip did not immediately respond to CNNMoney’s request for comment.
Stockeys company told Business Insider that the license fees for its licensing fees for the content are the same as those paid by a movie theater.
The license fee, however, could be lower if the content is used on TV or film, Stocks company added.
The licensing fee for Vip’s intellectual property rights in the content can range from $250 to $1,000 per item.
The company’s licensing agreement with the TV networks requires that Vip use the logos and names of Vip companies that it licenses to CBS, Viacom and the Motion Picture Association of America.
The rights for Viacoms content include its trademarks such as Vip, Vip Studios and Viacoma, and CBS owns the intellectual property on which Vip operates.
CBS does not license the Vip names, Stocckeys company said.
Viacomm and CBS did not respond to a request for more information about the Viacomi and VIP logos.
Stoccks company is not alone in wanting to be creative with intellectual property.
A handful of businesses are using their products to sell intellectual property that is protected under copyright.
For example, there’s the company named Intellectual Property Management LLC, which is selling merchandise featuring a logo of a movie company that was licensed to CBS and Showtime.
Intellectual Property Rights Management is not a trademark, but a copyright owner.
In the past, Intellectual Property rights holders have sued companies and individuals that use their intellectual property without permission, said attorney Jonathan Weisbrot, an intellectual property expert and partner at the Intellectual Property Law Institute at Washington University in St. Louis.
That type of action can be expensive, but Weisbart says it can be worth it.
“It’s the first time they’ve ever been able to sue someone,” Weisbard said.
“If they don’t get their rights, they can sue them for millions of dollars, so it’s a lot of money for them.
If they win, they win big.
If not, they lose big.”
If a person or business infringes on someone else’s intellectual rights, the court can issue an injunction to prevent them from selling, using, or importing the goods.
That’s because courts don’t have the power to impose sanctions on a company or person for infringement, and the injunction can prevent someone from doing business with a competitor.
The injunction can also give the court permission to issue an asset forfeiture order, a police-state-like seizure of the person or company’s assets.
That could be useful if the person has the money to pay the person who’s in the wrong.
It can also stop the company or the person from selling the goods if it can’t prove the person is liable, or if the owner can’t get a judge to make a decision on the matter.
Weisbros is a partner at Weisbrooks Law Group.
Intellectual property law expert Jonathan Weissbrot is a former attorney at the Justice Department who specializes in civil rights and criminal law.
He said that it can sometimes be difficult for businesses to navigate the court system when they’re facing a dispute.
“When a person’s in a position where they’ve been charged with an offense, it’s often difficult to get an order that allows you to sell your product without infringing on somebody else’s,” Weissbros said.
He added that businesses often have a hard time getting a license from a licensing authority, such as a movie studio, for a product that doesn’t violate copyright law.
“That’s a very
