ASMP Announces New Member Resource: Legal Jump-start

ASMP is pleased to announce the digital publication of Legal Jump-start: ASMP’s Business & Legal Primer for Photographers.

For seventy-five years, the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) has had a guiding principle: to support photographers and photography, and to help creators build and protect their businesses. Over these years, certain topics, like copyright registration and how to form a business come up in discussions time and time again. ASMP has published this guide to answer questions about these and other topics.

While this guide currently contains five chapters about topics ranging from registering copyrights to  drafting effective license agreements, this guide will continue to be updated to ensure that ASMP members have access to current, relevant information to make informed decisions about building business and protecting intellectual property.

Additional Jumpstart content includes ASMP Legal Clinic webinars and blogs on legal and business topics.

The Jump-start content is an ASMP member-only resource. To access the Jump-start content and the Legal Jump-start guide, you must log in to the ASMP website and then proceed to the page. Follow instructions for downloading guide.
