While digital creative brings accessibility, it also brings ever-changing issues regarding ownership, fair use and infringement. Whether your tool is a camera, keyboard, paintbrush or microphone, you’ll want to attend this informative presentation on copyright matters for creative professionals.

We’re pleased to welcome two highly-regarded attorneys from the Chicago office of global law firm Holland & Knight, known for its strong practice in media and entertainment. Associates Rick Bixter and Elaina Emerick have substantial backgrounds working with creative clients, and they’ll be presenting tips and techniques that will help you enforce your ownership without encroaching on someone else’s rights. They’ll be answering your own questions as well.

What’s more, this presentation is an excellent place to network, with attendees from Chicago Creative Coalition (C3), American Photographic Artists (APA), American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), Chicago Acting in Film Meetup, Chicago Filmmakers, Chicago Screenwriters Network, Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP), Graphic Artists Guild (GAG), IFP/Chicago, Independent Writers of Chicago (IWOC) and SAG/AFTRA Chicago.
