Supporting Individual Artists Coffee Chat: Copyright for Artists

Recorded On: 01/15/2020


About this Coffee Chat

Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists. Our topic for January 2020 will be about copyright for artists.

How can artists protect their work through copyright law?

Join Luke Blackadar, Director of Legal Services for the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston, as he discusses the ins and outs of copyright for artists including: copyright basic rights and registration, copyright use and licensing, and fair use.

This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
