<pick>'''Format''' - A description of an entertainment idea. The word traditionally applied to game shows, but is becoming used more and more with other genres such as drama and sitcoms. A devisor creates a paper format when they have expanded their initial idea enough such that a producer could make a rough programme from those details (even if it is not necessarily written down on paper). When the idea is turned into an actual working broadcast programme, it becomes a TV format. Both paper and TV formats can be sold to various companies in the television industry.</pick>

It is a difficult area because there is no special legislation that recognises formats as commercial artistic works in their own right.
