Intellectual property expert Sharon Givoni is set to demystify copyright law and photography in Sydney and Brisbane next month.
The event, presented by ACMP, is ideal for photographers wishing to be better informed or simply catch up on the latest in copyright law. Attendees can expect an insightful, up-to-date look at where copyright law stands with social media and the internet.
While the focus is on the online environment, the event also touches on day-to-day legal issues faced by photographers such as branding and trademarks, contracts, idea protection, terms and conditions with clients and possible defences to an infringement, with live case studies used along the way.
Ms Givoni has run her own Melbourne-based legal practice for 12 years specialising in copyright law. She advises photographers regularly, speaks frequently at conferences and lectures, and writes for photography magazine ProPhoto. She is also general editor of the Australian Intellectual Property Bulletin and Internet Law Bulletin.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions as part of the presentation.
The Sydney event will take place March 5, Momento Pro Showrooms, Chippendale.
The Brisbane event will take place March 27, Blackdog studios, Coopers Plain.
Tickets are $35 for ACMP and AIPP members, $55 for non members and $30 for students (with ID).
