TODAY AT 5 P.M.: Getting a "yes" from an editor on the article (or book) that you've pitched to them is always an exciting moment, and the question, "Who owns the copyright?" is probably the last one on our minds.
Yet understanding and managing the copyright(s) around your work is an essential part of protecting (and profiting from!) your reporting and writing efforts. Learning how to smartly assert your copyrights helps ensure that you can grow and build on your own portfolio, and make the most of what you've accomplished throughout your career.
In this session, Columbia University's Director of Copyright Advisory Services, Rina ElsterPantalony, will share essential strategies for securing and 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 and how they can negotiate if needed. We hope you'll join us for this important and informative event!
