Know Your (copy)Rights!
Getting a "yes" from an editor on the article (or book!) that you've pitched to them is always an exciting moment, & the question, "Who owns the copyright" is probably the last one on our minds.
Yet understanding & managing the copyright(s) around your work is an essential part of protecting (and profiting from!) your reporting & writing efforts. Learning how to smartly assert your copyrights helps ensure that you can grow & build on your own portfolio, & make the most of what you've accomplished throughout your career.
In this session,Columbia University's Director of Copyright Advisory Services, Rina Elster Pantalony, will share essential strategies for securing & protecting your copyrights, especially around digital work. With walkthroughs of real-world examples, she will help attendees learn to create better contracts for their work & how they can negotiate if needed. We hope you'll join us for this important & informative event!
