Creativity in the Digital Age:Copyright, Fair Dealing & Social Media
In the age of musical remixes and creative mash-ups, how do we know what's fair to use or what others can use of ours? The Internet has made presenting and accessing creative works - writing, art, music, photography - easier than ever and this has major implications on how we choose to showcase our creative output. Copyright lawyer Martha Rans gives you the ins and outs of this thorny subject in her Tyee Master Class, Creativity in the Digital Age. From understanding copyright and its application for creators to explaining fair dealing and fair use, she'll unravel this shifting and evolving legal issue that needs to be a major part of your business as an artist. Using case studies and actual legal proceedings, she'll also delve into the wide open world of social media and suggest best practices when it comes to attribution and protecting your own work.

This class is for all creators - writers, journalists, bloggers, visual artists, performing artists, photographers, musicians. Those with an interest in this field of law may also find this beneficial.

BONUS: The first person to register will receive a free copy of the latest edition of Canadian Copyright Law by Lesley Ellen Harris.

Bring writing materials - laptop or notebook - and come armed with questions about copyright in the digital age.

Martha Rans has over 18 years of expertise as a lawyer. Her Vancouver-based law practice specializes in intellectual property, non-profits, charity law, incorporation, governance, privacy, employment, labour law, and human rights. Her advice is strategic, tailored to the needs of her clients, and recognizes the intrinsic value of community, art and creativity.

Martha is an advocate for public legal education and information. She is the Legal Director of the Artists' Legal Outreach, which provides advice, information and education to thousands of BC's creators. She is also a copyright educator and teaches the next generation of artists and designers at post-secondary schools across Canada.
