didnt obtain the rights of the material before they did their projects.
Rights are obtained by purchasing the material or by an option agreement (which provides the producer the exclusive right to purchase the material). The reason for this is that most published material is copyrighted and any use of the material without the author's consent could bring about major lawsuits.
If a producer wants to find out where the picture rights currently stand for a piece of material, they can easily have a copyright search performed.
In the film industry, pre-production formally begins once a project has been greenlit.
