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.”

April 25th, Los Angeles: ASPP Presents “Understanding Copyright & Building a Copyright Centered Workflow”

American Society of Picture Professionals
Understanding Copyright & Building a Copyright Centered Workflow
Saturday, April 25, 2015, 11:00-1:00

“Should you register your copyrights?  What is a copyright anyway?  Should you really be worried about people stealing your images on the Internet?  How has the legal landscape for photographers changed with the emergence of Internet photo sharing?  How do you protect your images while still “getting your work out there?”

In this information-packed seminar, photographer and copyright lawyer Chris Reed will answer these questions and more, helping you build best practices for copyright registration and management into your existing image processing workflows.  Part legal tutorial, part software tutorial, this seminar will help you understand essential copyright concepts that apply to you and your business, and teach you how to maximize your rights without sacrificing exposure.

Speaker – Christopher S. Reed

Chris is a lawyer and a photographer based in Los Angeles.  On the legal front, Chris specializes in copyright and entertainment law; photographically, he focuses largely on landscape and travel photography.”

General: $18.00 | ASPP Members: Free | ASMP / APA Members: $10.00
