How safe is the art that you make? If you post it to Facebook, can someone legally swipe it? How about an online photo gallery? Copyrights are one of those areas that self-promoting artists need to educate themselves in, that's why tonight Kettle Art Gallery is hosting a free lecture on the topic.
You'll hear from Professor Brian Holland, a law educator at Texas Wesleyan who specializes in Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure and Intellectual Property education; Ally Godfrey, an active representative for commercial photographers, and Evan Stone, a lawyer who knows the in's and out's of copyright, trademark and entertainment law. The chat will be moderated by Kettle artist Erica Felicella, so don't go getting all rowdy.
Many folks have already submitted questions that will steer the evening's conversation, but it's okay if you haven't yet taken that step and have something important to address; there will be an open Q&A after the panel wraps up.
The whole thing is free and open to the public. Doors will part at 7 p.m. and the discussion kicks off at 7:30, so get there early if you want to snag a good seat. Kettle is located at 2714 Elm Street in Deep Ellum.
