Recent court cases with Canadian artists emphasize the importance of understanding copyright. Presenting and accessing creative works–-art, photography, video, writing, music–-is easier than ever and this has major implications on how we choose to showcase our creative output. From understanding copyright and its applications for creators to fair dealing and fair use, lawyer and copyright expert Martha Rans will unravel the shifting and evolving legal issues that need to be a major part of your business as an artist. This workshop is recommended for all creators: visual artists, media artists, composers, writers, performing artists, and photographers and is approximately 1.5 hours in length, plus Q & A.
