What is copyright and how to protect yourself (sometimes even from yourself)

This presentation will bring together private firm Media Arts Lawyers and the Arts Law Centre of Australia to discuss copyright. In this presentation you will hear about what to look out for in arts contracts as well as copyright; how it is created, how to protect it, how to use the copyrighted work of others, and what to do if someone infringes your copyright.
