Workshop on Copyright: Ideas, Authorship, and Registration
The world, even the word, of copyright can feel a little daunting at times – Can you copyright an idea? What does it mean to be an “author” of a work? What is “fair use”, and what “copyright infringement” entail? And the most mysterious idea of all remains–how do I even register for a copyright?? Join the Center for Art Law and Amelia K. Brankov in a workshop on copyright basics and the how-to’s on copyright registration.
