Copyright Workshop for Artists – January 16, 2019 @ The Post

Copyright for Artists

With the massive amount of media being easily shared digitally, how do we know what’s fair to use or what others can use of ours? Recent court cases with Canadian artists emphasize the importance of understanding copyright. Presenting and accessing creative works – art, photography, video, writing, music – is easier than ever and this has major implications on how we choose to showcase our creative output.

From understanding copyright and its applications for creators to fair dealing and fair use, lawyer and copyright expert Martha Rans will unravel the shifting and evolving legal issues that need to be a major part of your business as an artist. This workshop is recommended for all creators: visual artists, media artists, composers, writers, performing artists, and photographers.

The Copyright for Artists workshop was developed by the Artists’ Legal Outreach,, which is a group of volunteer lawyers and law students committed to working with artists and arts organizations. ALO offers resources, workshops and clinics across BC.

Martha Rans has been working with artists in all disciplines for 25 years. She is a recognized Canadian copyright expert.
