April 2012 Workshop: The Challenges of Copyright in the Digital Age

Have you ever been puzzled by copyright at the moment your mouse hovered over the “update” button? What is fair use, and how does it work? When do you need copyright permission, and how do you get it? Get answers to questions like these at The Deadline Club’s copyright workshop with Christopher Kenneally of The Copyright Clearance Center, a global rights broker for a variety of media, from newspapers and movies to blogs and ebooks. He produces a weekly podcast about the changing media landscape, “Beyond the Book,”, and travels the country giving educational workshops. This event is free for members of The Deadline Club.

The event will be held at the Newspaper Guild, 1501 Broadway, 7th Floor. Non-members may purchase tickets for $10. Refreshments will be served at a reception, beginning at 6:30pm. Kenneally will begin the workshop at 7pm, followed by what should be a lively question-and-answer session. RSVP here.

At that dinner, scholarships are awarded to some of the city’s most outstanding journalism students. The scholarships are funded through the Deadline Club Foundation. The Club also maintains the New York Journalism Hall of Fame and elects and inducts its members.
