Introduction to Copyright Law: Legal Protection of Creative Works
with Gary Goldberger, Esq.
****THIS IS A PAID EVENT****
Have you written, developed, drawn, painted or produced a creative work? If yes, then who owns the work and controls the right to exploit it? By attending the Introduction to Copyright Law: Legal Protection of Creative Works workshop you will be provided with an overview of the copyright law in the United States as it relates to the arts and entertainment industries. Topics to be discussed will include: the purpose of copyright law, what it applies to (and what it doesn't apply to), rights conferred by copyright, works-made-for-hire, works created as an employee, fair use, copyright reversion, sharing of copyright, and licensing of rights.
