NEXT STEP: Copyright Infringement
You know what copyright is. You know someone has infringed on it. So now what? Send them a letter? An angry phone call? Find a lawyer? It is difficult to know when and even how to begin to pursue a copyright infringement case.
On March 28, APA|DC welcomes the experienced copyright attorneys from DunlapWeaver, who will lead a lively and informative program about the intersection of photography and intellectual property law. The attorneys who will be speaking have literally pursued copyright infringement claims on behalf of copyright holders against thousands of individuals. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to ask questions and learn about copyright law, including methods to combat infringement, options once an infringement occurs, and reasonable expectations in cases of intellectual property dispute. Specific case studies will be used to illustrate points and concepts. We will also hear from a photographer who has been through the process and can talk about his personal experiences. Licensing images to the government also involves its own unique issues. The attorneys will discuss these specific considerations as well as other copyright-related topics.
This presentation is intended to empower photographers to control and profit from their own intellectual property by demystifying the process of maintaining and protecting that copyright. Photographers, illustrators and artists in all genres who earn a living from their copyrighted work are welcome.
March 28, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. (Program begins at 7 pm and will run until 8:15pm. There will be time for questions afterwards.)
