Event: Kickstart the Arts 2019

Executive Director Art Neill and Legal Fellow Alexandra Inman spoke to arts teachers and administrators from across San Diego County on Friday May 10, 2019 about copyright, fair use, openly licensed resources, and educational exceptions. We had a great time discussing what students need to know to fully exercise their rights to create, as well as the importance of understanding the business end of creating. We also made sure teachers know that they have unique abilities to use copyrighted works in the classroom that are protected by law.
