What are the principles of copyright law, and how does the fair use doctrine protect freedom of expression? Learn how copyright applies to works by nonfiction/documentary video and film professionals, journalists, nonfiction writers, documentary photographers and others during this free, 4-hour seminar open to attorneys, students, faculty and the general public. New York attorney Karen Shatzkin will lead the program. Known for her expertise in copyright law, Shatzkin will share lessons based on her more than 30 years of experience in dealing with legal issues affecting documentary films. Her experience includes vetting films pre-release; negotiating contracts with creative personnel, distributors, studios and networks; and responding to claims against filmmakers.
