In the last year, the Copyright Office and the courts have altered multiple requirements and standards that directly affect photographers. In this session, you will receive up to date info on copyright basics, registration tips, how to use the new spreadsheet and group applications required by the Copyright Office, and much more. This nuts-and-bolts webinar will get you up to speed on what, where, when, and how to register your copyrights, and why that is so vital.
Dallas-based attorney, Tom Maddrey of Maddrey PLLC, will provide attendees with information about navigating the copyright process, and answer your questions in the Q&A following his presentation. Bring your questions. You don’t want to miss this important event.

About the ASMP Legal Clinic
ASMP is well aware that legal services can be a very expensive line item in a photographer’s budget, especially if legal counsel is required to enforce contracts and licensing agreements that may have been breached by clients or third parties. To assist members with broadening their legal knowledge, ASMP is launching a new member benefit – the ASMP Legal Clinic – to provide members with legal knowledge to assist them in navigating those issues that may arise in their day to day work. Instead of the hundreds of dollars an hour it costs to consult an attorney directly, these series of webinars will be a cost-effective way to get critical legal information. ASMP believes that the legal knowledge that will be conveyed in the clinics will assist members in adopting best practices in negotiations and agreements that may be able to help members avoid costly legal expenses in the future.
