There has been a surge of virtual creative content and arts experiences being offered online. Many artists, cultural organizations and venues are finding new ways to reach audiences and participants through digital platforms.

However… do you know if you have the rights to share that creative content on that distribution platform? Do you have the rights to play that song during your online dance class? Is it OK to re-post a recording of your past live theatre performance? What are the rules to know before livestreaming your house concert?

This interactive conversation is designed to answer questions and provide general guidance on putting creative content (recorded or live) on digital platforms, as well as provide some basics of copyright. This presentation will be led by Dave Ratner with the Creative Law Network.
