"Copyright 2012 Update: Fair Use and Photography, What You Need to Know"

Friday, March 23 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Grand Ballroom A

The legal doctrine, Fair Use, is difficult to define and impossible to predict, but never more so than in the aftermath of the case Patrick Cariou v. Richard Prince. Although the photographer, "won", the case should not be celebrated by photographers as a victory. If it stands, it guts the notion appropriation art that uses photography as a viable genre. This would have a chilling effect on the practice of appropriation art by photographers.

This presentation will cover the trajectory of Fair Use and give educators valuable information to take back to the classroom.
