What is copyright? What rights does an artist have in the work they create? Does an artist need to register work to protect copyright? If an artist uses someone else’s work in their art, are they infringing copyright? If an artist sells work, do they still retain copyright? If someone posts a photo of an artwork online and does not identify the artist, what can be done about it? Julia Ryckman will answer these and many more questions!

Instructor: Julia Ryckman is an intellectual property lawyer at Pitblado LLP and is presently teaching Copyright Law at the University of Manitoba Law School. Passionate about the arts, she is a performing musician, composer and Chair of Video Pool Media Arts Centre’s Board of Directors.
