Will the pirates prevail or do you know how to protect your
copyrights in the digital era? This workshop will explore how
copyright law has changed both substantially and incrementally in
the past ten years as photographers have gained more protection,
but less power because it is harder to enforce rights in a digital
world. Issues such as Fair Use and proposed legislation such as
Orphan Works are hotly debated and frequently misunderstood.
We will review current copyright law, including Orphan Works,
the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the most current
rulings on fair use both from the perspective of the copyright
holder and the appropriation artist.
