Copyright Basics for Artist and Art Collectors

  • Georgia Coastal Center 305 Fahm Street Savannah, GA, 31401 United States (map)

Part 1 of a 4 Part Winter Workshop Series presented by Arc.

You’ve completed your work of art, or you’ve just purchased a new masterpiece for your home or office. Now, who owns the work and controls the right to exploit it? This workshop will provide an overview of the copyright law in the United States as it relates to the arts industries. Topics to be discussed will include the purpose of copyright law, what it applies to and what it doesn't apply to, rights conferred by copyright, works-made-for-hire and works created as an employee, fair use, copyright reversion, sharing of copyright, and licensing of rights. - Presented by Dr. Christen Higgins Clougherty, Savannah State University faculty.

Admission for seminars and panel discussions are free to ARC Savannah members (annual membership $20 for artists, $30 for art advocates) or $15 per event for non-members. Pay at the door, or become a member at
