Tuesday, November 16, 2021
6:30 – 7:30PM
You want to use that image, that footage you found - but can you? What should you do to find out what’s freely usable - and what’s not.
Hear from attorney Fernando Ramirez, who will take us through the basics of thinking about Fair Use. And bring your questions!
