A Canadian Copyright Law Primer: Visual Arts

A Canadian Copyright Law Primer: Visual Arts

ACI Manitoba and the University of Manitoba’s (Faculty of Law) Pro Bono Student Canada (PBSC) have partnered for a second year to deliver an expanded primer on copyright in the visual arts. Under the guidance of Andrew J. D. Buck (Pitblado), our free presentation is open to visual artists and arts administrators. PBSC will be covering what Canadian copyright law encompasses, and will answer questions such as:

  • Canadian copyright law basics;
  • Licensing and assigning rights;
  • Defending your copyright;
  • What is the Creative Commons license;
  • Copyright and the internet/social media.

Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) is a national network of law schools, law students, community organizations and lawyers all working together to solve traditionally unmet legal problems; the goal of the program is to combine education with access to justice. PBSC encourages students and legal professionals to volunteer in their communities to provide under-represented and disadvantaged individuals, groups and organizations with legal services for the public good. PBSC facilitates these efforts by matching volunteer law students with non-profit agencies, lawyers taking pro bono cases and other publicCopyright symbol interest groups to provide information and research in a legal context that is supervised by a volunteer practicing legal professional.
