Copyright Law for Creatives
November 1, 2022
11:00am - 12:30pm
Virtual (Zoom) workshop hosted by the Shoreline Arts Alliance
Registration is NOW OPEN. Register for this workshop HERE

What is copyright? What does it do? Do I “own” copyright? Why does this matter? Copyright is a fundamental legal protection that gives creators the power to control access to their work. In this educational presentation, art lawyers will explain basic principles of copyright: what it is, what it protects, what protection entails, and how you can be proactive in securing copyright protection for your own creative work.
