When: September 9, 2014
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.

Professionals who know Carol:
“As an attorney, arts administrator, and professional musician, I can say with certainty that there is no greater friend to artists than Carol Steinberg. In the years that I have known her, she has consistently amazed me with the breadth of her knowledge of the law and the arts, and I have seen her teach or help literally hundreds of artists. She does this all with a kindness and humility that shatters the stereotypes of both fields. We are beyond lucky to have her in our community.”
Peter Cobb, saxophonist, attorney, and administrator at the New York Foundation for the Arts
