Legal Issues in Social Media

November 23, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Man on Laptop and Phone

Location: Online

Mastering the social media landscape is an essential tool for today’s artists to publicly share their work and communicate with fans. What do artists and other creatives need to know to maximize the benefits of social media and avoid potential pitfalls? This class will cover general principles in intellectual property law for artists using social media, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and its implications for user-generated content. We will also tie in current events related to legal issues with social media.
