Maryland Lawyers for the Arts / Conference on Creativity & Law

Maryland Lawyers for the Arts
Conference on Creativity & Law 
April 10, 2 – 5 p.m.
American Visionary Art Museum 
800 Key Highway, Baltimore, MD

Ever make a fanvid or remix someone else’s music? Today’s technology makes new art forms easy—but are they legal? Is your use of someone else’s copyrighted work fair or infringing?  Find out April 10 when Maryland Lawyers for the Arts (MLA) and the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) present a “Conference on Creativity & Law,” a look at the legal protections and hurdles artists of all kinds must navigate in their pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. Baltimore attorney Scott Johnson will map the current contours of copyright law, Creative Commons expert Fred Benenson will lay out that organization’s DIY approach to copyright, and filmmaker Kembrew McLeod will screen and discuss “Copyright Criminals,” a history of hip-hop and sampling.
