Davis To Give Copyright Presentation To Artists
Steve will present an overview on copyright law for artists tonight, July 20, 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Barton Gallery, 1723 I Street, Sacramento, California.
The presentation will cover a broad range of topics on copyright law: what copyright law covers, how long copyright lasts, how to register a copyright, who owns the copyright, and how you can tell if one piece of art infringes the copyright in another. His talk will emphasize the doctrine of "fair use" in incorporating preexisting works of art into new art, with specific examples and illustrations.
The presentation is part of a regular series of workshops sponsored by California Lawyers for the Arts, an organization that serves as an informational resource for artists and also provides mediation and arbitration services. The cost of the program for CLA members is $10 and for the general public is $20.
