“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.
