SYNOPSIS:
12PM - 12:45PM - Owning Your Own Content
Come learn from Marci Rolnik Walker, Legal Director of Lawyers for the Creative Arts, about the ins and outs of copyright ownership. Whether generating performances, music compositions, sound recordings, film and video, images, choreography or other work, it’s important to document your ownership at every stage of creation, especially when working with co-authors. When do you need a contract and what terms should you look out for? What about work for hire, licensing rights and recapturing rights lost? Come learn what steps you should be taking along the way and how to be prepared when that record deal or film distribution offer comes along. Marci will also review DIY resources and how to get free legal help from LCA, the only Illinois nonprofit legal services organization specifically geared toward helping artists of all disciplines.
