Winning the Copyright War

With technology rapidly outpacing the legal protections provided by copyright law, how do professional photographers find the right balance between publicizing their work, protecting their rights and receiving fair compensation? In this critically important seminar, ASMP past president Richard Dale Kelly describes the state of copyright, addresses where copyright law is going and provides an analysis of the tools being developed to manage the digital distribution of creative works.

You’ll leave with an invaluable framework that will help you protect your images and effectively navigate:

  • social media
  • digital publishing
  • terms of service
  • work made for hire
  • fair use
  • and more!
