We're excited to announce that New Media Rights Executive Director Art Neill will be speaking on a panel at the Alliance for Community Media Annual Conference on August 13, in Pasadena, CA from 3:30-5:00pm.
The topic of the panel will be "Intellectual Property, Copyright, and Fair Use in Media."
The panel will be an opportunity to help community media learn about copyright and fair use, and the many ways the law can actually empower their creativity. The panel will also cover how to avoid legal disputes in the first place, and how to move forward if you do face legal threats.
The conference takes place from August 12-14 at the Hilton Pasadena.
Here's a description of the panel:
Art Neill - New Media Rights
Maira Sutton - Electronic Frontier Foundation
James Horwoord - Spiegel & McDiarmid LLP
"Technology has made it increasingly challenging to navigate the world of intellectual property, particularly in media and arts. What kind of rights do you need to secure? What is Fair Use and can anyone explain when it applies? How do you navigate the legal issues in platforms like YouTube? Where can rights be obtained if needed? What are a producer’s liabilities? Can local bands play cover tunes? Can you fight a take-down notice? How much trouble can your organization be in? "
