Contract and Copyright Basics for Artists

With Corey Carter, Esq.

California Lawyers for the Arts presents a workshop for artists to gain a broad overview of contract basics and intellectual property rights. Presenter Corey Carter will cover information about common contract clauses--focusing on ways to avoid pitfalls and common mistakes. This workshop will walk you through the most important clauses necessary to any contract, how to achieve a "meeting of the minds," and how to protect yourself from contract litigation.

We will also give a brief overview of copyright issues including joint-authored work, work-made-for-hire, derivative works, copyright infringement, fair use, public domain, and registration of copyright.
