There’s no question that the capabilities and usage of mobile devices continue to rise as technology advances. That means new and existing audiences are using mobile devices to search for your organization, access information about it, and even purchase tickets. If your arts organization has yet to embrace mobile, you’ll soon be left behind. As more arts organizations adopt new forms of technology to engage audiences, you must evaluate your own organization’s (and audience’s) mobile needs and act on them. In this webinar, you will hear how organizations have used mobile in innovative (and in some cases, free!) ways. REGISTER NOW.

Protecting Intellectual Property Rights in a Work-Made-for-Hire Economy: Important considerations for artists, creative freelancers, employees and employers

Copyright Law protects a work from the time it is created in a fixed form.  From the moment it is set in print, a sound recording, a software program or any other concrete medium, the copyright becomes the property of the author who created it.
