Like many artists, those working in film, video and new media need protection for their creative work. Yet many also need access to sample, reference and illustrate using the work of others. In the battle between copyright violations and fair use rights, where do we draw the line for filmmakers? What should filmmakers do if they find themselves on either side of the issue, and what are some practical solutions to prevent a violation? This panel of experts will discuss how both sides of the coin can promote and prevent innovation, as well as answer many questions so that filmmakers and artists can navigate through the muddy waters of copyright and fair use rights for all artists.
