Understanding the basic principles of copyright law is important to nearly all creative artists, especially in the digital age. What does it mean when something is copyrighted? Who owns copyrights? What is the difference between copyright and trademark law? Join California Lawyers for the Arts and attorney Melissa Dagodag for an introduction to copyright law. The program will answer all of these questions and provide a framework for understanding copyright protections and terminology such as "fair use" and "work-made-for-hire."

"Downright Hilarious... Staggeringly Brilliant" - Time Out Chicago
The Improvised Shakespeare Company, the funniest and most critically acclaimed theatrical Improv troupe in the country, is coming to LARGO for one night only on October 27th. The ISC plays regularly to sold-out crowds in NYC Off-Broadway, and was recently one of the big hits of UCB’s Del Close marathon where they played to a standing room only crowd of 700+ people. The ISC tours nationally and internationally at Performing Arts Centers and has been featured at Montreal's Just for Laughs, Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, SF Sketchfest, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and most recently at Outside Lands in San Francisco where Sir Patrick Stewart performed with them as a special guest. The ISC has been named Chicago's best Improv group by both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner and has received a New York Nightlife Award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Group".
