Media professionals routinely use the Internet as a means of both gathering and disseminating information about themselves and their clients. A whole new body of laws and issues has arisen in the last ten years that may expose you and your clients to legal liability for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, breach of contract and others. Learn how to proactively manage these risks on July 10, when Internet and Copyright Law expert Brad Frazer conducts a lively and interactive discussion of copyright law basics (like fair use and copyrighting your work) and web-specific copyright issues like linking, framing, licensing, right-clicking, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
