Clearing Copyrights in a Digital World: Effective Strategies

Thursday, November 12, 2020, 1 pm - 2 pm ET
WEBINAR Copyright

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are focusing their businesses online, faster than they ever expected to. Content creators are finding new ways of reaching their audiences. Online-first businesses are booming. This growing online presence has created numerous opportunities for businesses, customers, creators, audiences and fans, but comes with certain risks.

Join us on November 12, 2020 for a practical discussion of what you need to know about clearing copyrights as we shift to an increasingly digital world.

The webinar will provide attendees with a broad overview of the legal considerations associated with online content as well as practical and cost-effective strategies to clear copyrights across different categories of works – from images to music to AV to software. The panel will provide tips for establishing effective clearance procedures and guidelines, discuss how to clear rights both directly and through collectives and whether fair dealing or other exceptions apply to online uses of copyright-protected works.
