Of note: This lecture is being held in Bellevue.
This is notification for a Washington Lawyers for the Arts presentation. This is not a meetup group social event - it will be a lecture which anyone is welcome to attend. The lecture starts promptly at 12. Doors open at 11:45 to allow plenty of time to check in, find your seat, or pay for your ticket if you're that sort of last-minute person. Please do go early as I only have "north campus" as an address right now, and you will still have to find the room.

In the modern era of intellectual property law, with digital technology and complex contracts, knowing your legal rights is as important as making amazing photos. What are your legal rights and responsibilities as a photographer? Do you have questions about your contracts or about the copyright on your work?
Attorney Jen Hurley will cover important topics to ensure that you protect yourself and your clients from any legal pitfalls, including:
+ When do you need permission from your photography subjects?
+ What are different licensing schemes for your photos?
+ What can you do if someone is using your work without your permission?
