MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Thursday, September 18 at 2:00pm EDT for Copyright, Common Mistakes and Myths Webinar.
Primarily aimed at small and mid-sized publishers, this webinar focuses on copyright law, common mistakes and myths about copyright. Copyright is the lifeblood of publishers. Not only are their works produced protected by copyright, but publishers must contract with authors, photographers and often other publishers in order to obtain permission to use portions of copyrighted works in the new works they are publishing. Publishers make mistakes in dealing with copyright and often rely on myths about the applicability of defenses such as fair use, first sale and others. Recent litigation will also be addressed.
