*Program Description*:

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.
