Free seminar: Copyright and Social Media

“Copyright and Social Media” an event with NPPA General Counsel Mickey H. Osterreicher, hosted by the Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW) and the National Press Club Photography Committee, and kindly sponsored by the NPPA.

How can photographers protect the millions of images and recordings produced every day and posted on traditional websites and social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram? As millions of those images and videos get uploaded, viewed and shared, the importance of understanding and protecting intellectual property rights is more important than ever. This program will discuss copyright issues and some of the latest cases as well as the terms of service for social media.
