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."
