Terms & Conditions

Burnt Papyrus is a non-profit making collaboration between those people who are involved with the projects we create. For copyright over a film in its entirety we follow UK law:

In the case of a motion picture, the period of copyright is determined by the life of the principal director, the author of the screenplay, the author of the dialogue, and the composer of any original music for the film. If that person is not a national of a European Economic Area (EEA) country, and the country of origin is not in the EEA (for example, the United States of America), the period of copyright is that provided by the film’s country of origin, if that period is less than the normal period under UK law. If a film does not have any of the four persons mentioned above, the duration of its copyright is 50 years.


We ask for those working with Burnt Papyrus grant us a non-exclusive licence to use any material they produce for our films in perpetuity.
