Copyright for Photographers in the Digital Age




Join entertainment and media law attorney Nancy E. Wolff, author of The Professional Photographer’s Legal Handbook (Allworth Press), for an exciting discussion of copyright law for photographers.  She will answer common questions such as:

What does copyright protect?
What does copyright not protect?
What’s fair use?
When do I need releases?
What can I do if I see my photograph online without permission?

Experienced in copyright, trademark and digital media law, Nancy offers full legal support to a wide range of traditional and digital media clients.

Operating almost as an in-house lawyer, Nancy advises her clients on the registration and protection of intellectual property in the area of copyright and trademark, advises when releases are necessary under various publicity laws, and how to promote the client’s products and services without running afoul of the many advertising and privacy rules that are developing.
