Knowledge is power. With image theft rampant, it is vitally important that you know the facts regarding copyright protection and how to effectively exercise your rights. Too many times due to lack of information, mis-information or just plain carelessness, a photographer has been left defenseless unable to take action against infringers. Don’t let this happen to you. Join Moderator Debra Weiss and an esteemed panel that includes Attorney Jamie Silverberg, Photographer John Harrington and Senior Art Producer Cindy Hicks of The Martin Agency for what promises to be an informative and entertaining program that will inspire and empower.

The following topics will be discussed:

Registration: How To Do It And Why

What To Do When Your Image Has Been Infringed

How and When To Choose An Attorney

Appropriation – Is It Ever Justified?

Fair Use: When Is It Really Fair?

The Anti-Copyright Forces – Who and Why?
