Legal Matters in Art: Is it Fair? A Guide to Fair Use in Art (CLE)

October 19, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Are you an artist wondering if and when you can incorporate copyrighted material into your artwork? There are certain circumstances where the limited, “fair use” of copyrighted material may be permitted. Is it Fair? is designed to enable non-lawyers, as well as lawyers who have limited experience in the subject, to understand how copyright law – with a particular focus on fair use – affects visual art.

Continuing Legal Education: This program provides 1.5 CLE credits to attorneys, approved for Non-Transitional and Transitional Attorneys.

Three-Part Workshop Series: Legal Matters in Art: Is it Fair? A Guide to Fair Use in Art is the last workshop in VLA’s Three-Part Series: Legal Matters in Art. Although not required, we encourage you to join us for all three workshops to get a full overview of the most important legal issues for artists. To register and learn more, click here.
