For this week’s Town Hall, we bring it back to one of the most important things that affect each and every photographer and small business owner: copyright.
Starting with a review of the CASE Act and the benefits of its passage by ASMP Executive Director Tom Kennedy, we pivot to reviewing the basics of copyright law, check on the new rules and court rulings, discuss fair use and registration and so much more. Of course, it’s an open Q&A after that to discuss copyright, CASE Act, EIDL, PPP, etc. We are here for you!
