Board Meeting Agenda:
Hello Copyright: What Every Artist Needs to Know About Copyright Law
We are all influenced by each other’s work. But where is the line between being inspired and illegal copying? Is infringement the same as plagiarism? What is “fair use”? Can I depict famous people? Is it okay to mimic famous artworks? What about working from photographs? Is it safe to scan images from the web if I digitally alter them? Can I use old images, or works from other countries? When is parody okay? What if I’m making a political statement? Is it safe to use copyrighted imagery in my collages? When is something in the “public domain”?
In this presentation, artist and arts attorney Linda Joy Kattwinkel will show us numerous examples of infringing and non-infringing case studies through side-by-side visual comparisons. For those of you who attended Ms. Kattwinkel’s presentation last year, this version includes some updated examples, with more time for questions and answers. You are invited to bring your own artwork and references for review.
About Linda Joy Kattwinkel
Linda Joy Kattwinkel received her BFA cum laude in Communication Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1975. In 1978 she moved to Los Angeles to study feminist art-making with Sheila de Bretteville, Arlene Raven, and others at the Women’s Building, where she also taught in the Summer Art Program. After a 13-year career as an illustrator and graphic artist, she was inspired to devote her artistic energies to continued exploration of personal artwork, and to go to law school. She received her J.D. cum laude from Hastings College of the Law in 1991. As a member of the law firm Owen, Wickersham & Erickson, Linda Joy’s law practice focuses on copyright, trademark and arts law on behalf of designers and visual artists. She speaks and writes frequently on such issues, including the online column Legalities for visual artists. https://www.owe.com/resources/legalities/. She continues to create personal artwork at her studio in San Francisco.
2021 is here! and so are multiple online workshops coming your way by Artist Success Coach, Martha Zlatar. Don’t miss the opportunity to take advantage of these discounted NCWCA sponsored workshops happening February-April. See workshop descriptions in links.
