You’ve written, developed, drawn, painted or produced a creative work.
Now who owns the work and controls the right to exploit it? This workshop
will provide an overview of the copyright law in the United States as it
relates to the arts and entertainment industries. Topics to be discussed
will include the purpose of copyright law, what it applies to and what it
doesn’t apply to, rights conferred by copyright, works-made-for-hire and
works created as an employee, fair use, copyright reversion, sharing of
copyright, and licensing of rights.
