### What can be said about a pullback of a very ample line bundle w.r.t birational maps?

Let $X$ be a smooth projective variety and $\phi: X \to \mathbb P^n$ be a map. If $\phi$ is an embedding then $E=\phi^*(O(1))$ is very ample. But can one say something if $\phi$
is birational (but not ...

### Technique to prove basepoint-freeness

Let $X$ be a smooth projective variety over $\mathbb{C}$.
And let $L$ be a big and nef line bundle on $X$.
I want to prove $L$ is semi-ample($L^m$ is basepoint-free for some $m > 0$).
The only way ...
