Fair Use is a Lousy Business Model
Presented by Michael D. Steger
This online presentation covers the basics of copyright law, including ownership, transfer, licensing and the requirements to be considered a “work made for hire”. We explore best practices for protecting your works from being infringed and how to avoid infringing others’ creations. Finally, we discuss the concept of “fair use”, the application of the fair use defense in the real world, and practical measures to maximize the value of your own copyrighted works.
