From the Pittsburgh PUG page...THEY ARE HOSTING THIS.  THIS IS FOR YOUR INFORMATION!!!

You should register on FACEBOOK... Look for PITTSBURGH PUG and find the event.


In January we welcome Richard Kelly to discuss copyright issues for today's pro photographer. As always, all are welcome and appetizers will be provided.

Copyright in the digital age, for photographers

With technology rapidly outpacing the legal protections provided by copyright law, how do professional photographers find the right balance between publicizing their work, protecting their rights and receiving fair compensation? In this critically important seminar, ASMP past president Richard Dale Kelly describes the state of copyright, addresses where copyright law is going and provides an analysis of the tools being developed to manage the digital distribution of creative works.
You’ll leave with an invaluable framework that will help you protect your images and effectively navigate:
-Social media
-Digital publishing
-Terms of service
-Work made for hire
-Fair use
-And more!

    This sounded really good. I had to cancel, because of the weather. I hope it is presented again. Thanks for alerting us to this.

    This sounds really excellent. I didn't see a website listed...do you know if registration via Facebook is required? I don't currently have an account.
