Event description
Copyright Confidential - a session exploring copyright basics & infamous artist copyright court cases.

About this event

Understanding how copyright is interwoven into an artistic practice is fundamental to protecting your rights and ensuring you abide by copyright law. However, what happens when something goes wrong? You find your work has been copied without your permission, or you aren’t sure if you have just infringed somebody else’s copyright? What does it even mean to infringe someone else’s copyright?!

This webinar is presented by Naomi Korn, copyright expert and Managing Director of Naomi Korn Associates, and in partnership with Ceri Hand, founder of Artist Mentor. The session will provide a basic introduction to copyright and an overview of the relevant copyright legislation covering the key points specific to artists' and creators. Plus, we will also delve into some of the infamous real-world examples of artists copyright court cases. We will examine who got it right and wrong, as well as the lessons we can learn.

There will be time for questions, so please bring any queries you have, and we will try to get to as many as we can.
