Thank you to the Chicago Photographic Arts Society for hosting me November 29, to speak on Copyright Law for Photographers. Members came with great questions that sparked lively discussion. What is a copyright? Why should you copyright your photographs? How long does a copyright take? How long does a copyright last? How much does a copyright cost? Do you need permission to take photographs of people out and about in the city? What is copyright infringement? How do you avoid it? What is a license agreement?
Here is the PowerPoint I shared with them, and I now share with you. Please copy and share abundantly.
