Today we're welcoming FCCP member and today's guest speaker, Robert Neff. Robert has been an active proponent for improved copyright laws for several years and will demonstrate how to register your images with the Copyright Office. Robert will also discusses personal experiences with having photos stolen and the legal processes he went through to recover damages.

FCCP Director, Jeff Donald has lectured for over 35 years on copyright laws and procedures. Jeff will discuss his experiences with having photos stolen and how he recovered $1,000's in damages.

There will be time allotted for plenty of questions at the end of the demonstrations and discussions.

The meeting will conclude around 11 AM and everyone is welcome to join Robert and Jeff to discuss copyrights etc. No food or beverage purchases is required to stay.

We must have at least 35 RSVP's or we will not be able to have this class. Using the projector and screen requires that we have half the restaurant. This is not possible unless we have the minimum number of attendees.

Please also consider staying after the class and joining Jeff and other experienced FCCP members and getting all you questions answered by the experts at FCCP. Here is the link to RSVP for the after class event,

What FCCP Members are saying about the class.

Jeff explains patiently, in a logical sequence, and with strict clarity. He continually checks for understanding, and dignifies all questions. His sense of humor puts everyone at ease . . . . . . Cade

Great class and great studio! I love learning in depth how a program works, so this class was spot on. I will be there next week! . . . . . . Kelly

Great group of people, great teacher & a comfortable, quiet meeting site! . . . Jane

I have had good instructors in the past, but Jeff Donald is by far the best. He speaks clearly and loudly, he knows his subject, he knows what is important to cover, he stays on task, he repeatedly asks for questions, he is friendly, he has a sense of humor, and he is everyone’s idea of a leader. . . . . .
