Copyright for Visual Artists is the third in a three part series addressing business topics specifically for visual artists.

Protect yourself and your artwork. This informative presentation will cover issues affecting content that every visual artist – including painters, sculptors, photographers, and mix media artists – should know. Rights of copyright holders, when to file a copyright, as well as myths surrounding buzzwords like “fair use” and “public domain” will be discussed. Time for Q&A will be allowed.
