November 18th, Webinar: Business as unUsual – 21st Century Copyright & You

ASMP Business as unUsual
21st Century Copyright & You
Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 1:00-2:00 PM EST

“No legislative act has a greater impact on your ability to earn a living as a creator than copyright. For the first time since 1976, Congress and the Copyright Office are engaged in serious talks to significantly modernize the Copyright Act and the Copyright Office itself. Global corporations with deep pockets have already aligned against the interests of independent creators. Only our numbers and a strong unified voice can counter their lobbyists and their messaging. ASMP Executive Director Tom Kennedy will give you a solid understanding of what’s at play and how you can contribute to the process to ensure that you’ll be able to earn a living in this new era of copyright.

Please note: Live attendance is limited. All registrants and ASMP Members will have free access to a recording after the event. Non-members who have not registered may access the recording for $4.99.”

August 13th, Los Angeles: “Copyright: Know It Or Blow It” with Debra Weiss & James Silverburg

Copyright: Know It Or Blow It
Tuesday, August 13, 2013, 7:00-9:30 pm
Registration: Affiliate $15 | ASMP member $10 | non-member $20 | Student $5

“Creative Consultant Debra Weiss and Intellectual Property Attorney James Silverberg will take you through an informative and entertaining evening that will inspire and empower by discussing key topics that include:

  • Why copyright registration matters.
  • Putting copyright to work for you – We pay cash for gold!
  • What to do when your image has been infringed.
  • Fair Use – When is it really fair?
  • Social Media – Risk vs reward.

Understanding how to put copyright to work for you is crucial to your success as a photographer. Predatory image rights demands and widespread image theft can leave a photographer’s business in jeopardy. Knowing the facts about copyright protection and how to effectively exercise and monetize your rights is paramount. Lack of information, misinformation or carelessness can leave a photographer defenseless and unable to take action against infringers. Don’t let this happen to you.
