Do you take your copyright seriously? Has your work ever been used without your permission? Do you file regularly? Ever? Don’t wait until your photography is stolen to acquaint yourself with copyright protection.
Intellectual property attorney Leslie Burns will walk you, step-by-step, through the process to register your copyrights using the eCO system. Registration is the key to protecting your work and getting paid for all those infringements you are finding! This presentation will show actual screenshots of a real registration so you will see what you need to do for a proper Group Registration of Published Photographs (the most complicated of the registrations).
Leslie will also explain the important details that can make or break your registration and point out common errors and myths. Bad registrations can turn your million-dollar suit into dust. Learn how to do them right!
Leslie Burns works primarily in copyright and resides in San Diego. She works closely with creative professionals on copyright and small business issues as a part of the Law Offices of Carolyn E. Wright, LLC (photoattorney.com). Leslie also presents and lectures to creative professionals and professional organizations on both legal and marketing issues.
