Legal Clinic #3: Rights of Privacy and Publicity for Photographers (2020 Edition)

Every professional photographer knows about copyright, but many are not well versed in how the rights of privacy and publicity can have an effect on what you are paid, and when your client or subject can exert control over the images you create. Intertwined with these rights are model releases, and we will discuss how to draft a protective release and how recent advances in technology have changed the landscape for releases of all types.

Legal Clinic #2: How to Write a License Agreement That is Effective

So often, photographers have been using the same licensing agreements that were handed down to them years past. Unfortunately, many of these agreements are not going to count when it matters. In this session, we will review what needs to be in your license agreements to be effective, what cannot be in there, and how to write a license that will stand up to scrutiny by your client and the courts. This session will also include how best to get your client on board with your agreements, and when licensing might not be the best option.
