Monday, March 13
Are copyrights protected on Instagram and Facebook? Can you use a president’s photograph in your artwork to criticize or idolize? From Abraham Lincoln’s fondness for Matthew Brady’s photography to Richard Prince’s passion for Instagram, copyright and controversy have enlivened the American arts.
Join us for a lively, image-filled evening as Ray Dowd, author of Copyright Litigation Handbook (10th Ed. 2016-2017) discusses the collisions of photography, copyright and the fine arts in the nation’s courtrooms and provides practical pointers for content users and creators.
Mr. Dowd is a partner and member of Dunnigton, Bartholow & Miller‘s litigation and arbitration, intellectual property and art law and international practice areas. He has served as lead counsel in high-stakes, high-profile litigations and arbitrations in New York for over two decades. Q&A to follow.
