In this episode, I share an interview from my March 2012 Free Photo Webinars. I discuss copyright law for the photographer with Phil Marcus. This is a virtual seminar on copyright, trademark and patent issues. We discuss the nuances of issues such as:
- Work for hire
- Creating a copyright
- Enforcing your copyright
- What kinds of products can you copyright
- Copyright considerations on social networking sites
- And a host of issues every photographer should know
