Are you wondering how copyright law protects your work? What safeguards do you have in place for your commission, collaboration or consignment agreement? What alternatives (besides filing a lawsuit) are at your disposal in the case of an infringement, breach of contract or other dispute? What new developments help or harm your rights as an artist?
If you are concerned about protecting your work and rights, please join us for an evening with a panel of art and entertainment lawyers to discuss the basics in copyright, fair use, contracts and new developments in arts & entertainment law. 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. Artists of all disciplines are invited. This is not an event to miss!
Please RSVP at brooklynartscouncil.org by June 2. For questions please contact: Shannon Shird, Community Initiatives Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718.625.0080 x228
