Legal Basics for Artists

Professional Development workshop




6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Are you wondering how copyright law protects your work? Can you legally appropriate from another artist? What safeguards do you have in place for your commission, collaboration or consignment agreement? How can you protect your work and enter into contracts that benefit you?  Besides filing a lawsuit, what alternatives are at your disposal in the case of an infringement, breach of contract or other dispute?

Artists of all disciplines are invited to join us for a panel of art and entertainment lawyers to discuss the basics in copyright, fair use, contracts and dispute resolution. In addition to having your questions answered about your legal rights and potential liabilities, you will leave this seminar with practical legal resources for your creative practices.
