Fair Use and Copyright 101

Fair Use and Copyright 101

If you take pictures with your phone, send emails, write papers, or doodle — congratulations, you’re a copyright owner! And, if you take pictures, forward emails, quote works, download music, or hum a song, guess what? You’re using a copyrighted work, relying on fair use or another copyright exception. What do you need to know to teach, create art, write papers, or simply live in a world in which practically everything we create and use is copyrighted? How do you avoid getting in trouble, or do you even have to worry? Come to a workshop with copyright attorney Laura Quilter to get the 101 on copyright and fair use. We promise not to turn you in to the copyright police. (And tell you if that’s even a thing.)
