Description

Who Should Attend?

Are you a person who creates images, software, music, or video? Then, according to the US copyright office, you are an "author" who creates works of "authorship" and registering your creations with the U.S. Copyright Office is necessary to preserve and enforce your rights. This workshop provides a brief introduction to copyrights and walks you through the process of registering your copyright. Registering with the U.S. Copyright Office is a relatively easy process and this two-hour workshop presented by an experienced intellectual property attorney will show you how!

Why You Should Attend:

Without registration, you cannot use the legal process to prevent infringers from using your works. For a cautionary tale involving the Air Jordan logo, see here. Copyright registration is neither complex nor expensive and most applications can be filed online. For example, the filing fee for registering a single image online is currently $35 - a photographer can register up to 750 photos for a single filing fee of only $65.*

What You'll Learn:

  • WHAT a copyright is;
  • WHO can register a copyright;
  • HOW you register your copyright;
  • WHERE to register your copyright and where to find helpful information about Copyright Law;
  • WHY artists, musicians and other creators should protect their works; and
  • WHEN the best time is to file your application.

Overview of the Program:

  • 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM: Basic overview of what a copyright is and the copyright registration process;
  • 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM: Follow along as we complete and submit an actual copyright application during the seminar;
  • 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM: Question and Answer period.

Location:

  • This seminar will be at HeraHub, Sorrento Valley. Although HeraHub is a women's co-working space, all are welcome!
  • The conference room can accomodate up to 14 people, and the presentation will be displayed on a 65" monitor.
  • Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
