About this Webinar

This webinar covers the basics of copyrights that cartoonists and graphic novelists need to know: copyright basics, where to register, why to register.

Attendees will walk away with a basic understanding of:

  1. Types of contracts and contract terms cartoonists will encounter (such as “work-for-hire”)
  2. Copyright issues with collaborative work (who owns what)
  3. And the basics of fair use and fan art.
