Fair Use

Join WLA for this one-hour workshop led by well-known intellectual property attorneys Jeff Nelson and Lauren Schulz from DWT.

Fair Use is a complex topic. It is normal to be confused and have a lot of questions. You are not alone!




Is it Fair Use?

A few of the questions they will discuss during the workshop are listed below:

What do artists need to know about copyrights and why is it important?

Why should I protect my work from copyright infringement and how?

Am I infringing, are you infringing, who is actually infringing?

Isn’t fair use the answer? When am I able to use other copyrighted works without permission?

What do the courts say?  Learning about fair use from Leibovitz, the Beastie Boys, Warhol, and more
