Copyright for Artists | Thurs. Sept. 17/15

Thursday, September 17th, 2015, 6-7:30pm
Firestone Gallery, The Ottawa Art Gallery
Arts Court, 2 Daly Avenue


From protecting and receiving royalties for your work, to knowing what content you can use to create new works, understanding copyright is an important part of any artist’s practice and livelihood.

So just how do you obtain copyright protection? What rights do you have as a copyright owner? What do you do if someone is using your work without permission? What fees can you charge for allowing others to use your work? Are there instances where copying is allowed?

Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A that will help demystify copyright law for you!

Gilles Daigle, General Counsel, SOCAN
Matthew Estabrooks, Gowlings
Claudio Marzano, Artist and Art Consultant
Raymond Murray, The Souljazz Orchestra, Nelligan O’Brien Payne
Ariel Thomas, Fasken Martineau (moderator)
