Copyright and Intellectual Property for Artists
Come learn the basics of copyright law with local arts attorney, Caroline Kert. Learn how to identify when someone may be infringing your rights, or when you’re infringing theirs. We’ll also examine fair use concepts and popular misconceptions about intellectual property. Caroline has her own law firm, Creative Legal, and is an active volunteer with Colorado Attorneys for the Arts.
This event series is produced in partnership between CBCA, Art Students League of Denver, Clyfford Still Museum and RedLine Contemporary Art Center. CBCA’s participation supported by Ent Credit Union and Kenneth King Foundation.
Artificial Intelligence closed captioning is available for all of our live virtual programs via Zoom. American Sign Language interpretation is available upon request with two weeks advance notice subject to the availability of interpreters. We will make every effort to accommodate requests outside of that time frame. For these or other accommodation requests, email Sonia Rae at email@example.com.
