Saturday, March 20th 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Copyright Basics Workshop:
A Guide to rights management for the independent creative professional

United Divas Inc, Weerai Music and the 58 Gallery present a workshop that outlines the basics about copyright. The presenters, Anthony Hinds and Jan Tompkins, will share stories about various experiences and recent cases that have challenged the interpretations of copyright.

Designed for the independent creative professional, there will be several opportunities to get the questions about how to protect your creations answered through this workshop. Learn about some of the legal resources available to help creators and inventors. Gain a better understanding of how rights management laws enable you to protect and profit from your work. Explore and debate examples of derivative works and fair use situations. Learn ways to decide if the internet is the right forum for “exhibiting” the work you create. Get tips on how to navigate the legalese of the social networking terms of service agreements. Plus, this could be a great opportunity to mingle with other career driven pros.

Topics of discussion include:

- What is Intellectual Property?
- Copyright Registration
- Trademark
- Poor Man’s Copyright
- Rights Management
- Fair Use
- Creative Commons
- Licensing
- Tips about fine print
- Protecting your creations
- Terms of Service Agreements
