Workshop Description:

Licensing is a dynamic and lucrative field that allows artists to expand the reach of their creativity while safeguarding their intellectual property.

We will cover the fundamentals of copyright, licensing, fair use, payment and royalty schemes, and examine how different choices can impact your career and income potential.
