Digital technologies can offer and facilitate a space for creation, sharing and distribution. Aimed at circus artists and designers wishing to better understand the implications of sharing or participating in work online, this workshop will help demystify copyright laws within digital platforms. The workshop looks further at other intellectual property principles aimed at protecting artistic works, regardless of the medium through which they are disseminated. What do these laws protect? What do they imply?
At the end of this training, you will leave with a better knowledge of the main jurisprudence related to copyright law in digital platforms, allowing you to be able to make more informed artistic decisions!
