An Overview of Copyright Law for Creative Artists
with Melissa K. Dagodag, Esq.

Program: 
Understanding the basic principles of copyright law is important to nearly all creative artists, especially in the digital age. What does it mean when something is copyrighted? Who owns copyrights? What is the difference between copyright and trademark law? Join California Lawyers for the Arts and attorney Melissa Dagodag for an introduction to copyright law. The program will answer all of these questions and provide a framework for understanding copyright protections and terminology such as "fair use" and "work-made-for-hire."
