Navigating copyright laws can be confusing so it’s important to know your rights and how to protect your work. In this workshop, DACS will demystify rules and regulations, enabling you to make copyright work for you and your career. DACS will explain how to protect your rights, earn from licensing and other royalty schemes, and answer any burning questions you have. You will leave the workshop with a comprehensive knowledge of copyright, and the confidence to apply this to your art career.
