Copyright Demystified

Presented by

Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and Pam Samuelson

About this talk

Whether we like it or not, we live in a rapidly evolving copyright-intensive world. Virtually every photo we take, every email we write, every song we listen to, and every video we watch on YouTube is copyrighted. You may know that peer-to-peer file-sharing of copyrighted material is illegal, but how many of the uses you regularly make of digital content on the web are OK as a matter of copyright law? When is remixing or mashing up other people's content, or quoting at some length from content you either like or hate acceptable? When do you need to clear rights with copyright owners, and when can you rely on the fair use limitation on copyrights? What's the difference between copyrights, patents, trademarks, and privacy rights? Copyright is a valuable asset for all authors. We ought to be careful about giving these rights away through contracts with publishers or other firms that want to exploit our work. Authors who assigned their rights years ago may be able to get back those rights if the work is no longer being exploited. Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and Pam Samuelson, for this free one-hour webinar to get answers to these and others of your questions about copyright and how it affects the world you live in.
