"The Evolution of Your Creative Rights"
Thursday, March 07 - 3:00PM to 4:15PM
With technology rapidly outpacing the legal protections provided by copyright law, how does the professional photographer find the right balance between publicizing their work, protecting their rights and receiving fair compensation? In a culture where "free" prevails, digital copies retain the same integrity as the original and social media platforms, publishers, ad agencies and corporations demand more and more rights contractually, the professional photographer faces both challenges and opportunities that must be carefully weighed. In this critically important seminar, ASMP past president, Richard Kelly, expands upon his chapters in The ASMP Guide to New Markets in Photography to provide an invaluable framework for navigating social media, digital publishing, contracts, terms of service, fair use issues and more. The first 50 attendees will receive ASMP's groundbreaking new book: The ASMP Guide to New Markets in Photography (limit one per conference attendee).
