Intro to Copyrights

If you create content like blog posts, videos, photos, designs, podcasts, books, or really anything unique and creative, then listen up! Today we’re dipping our toes into the murky world of copyrights and copyright infringement. Copyright protection is rarely cut and dry, so it’s important that you have a strong grasp on the basics in order to keep your copyrighted material safe.

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • How to know if the content you’re creating is or isn’t covered by a copyright. 

  • The protection you have through automatic copyrights 

  • Why you should avoid relying on Fair Use doctrine

  • The methods attorneys use to figure out if someone is infringing upon a copyright 

Send me your questions about copyrights! We’ll be covering this topic more in depth in future episodes, so let me know what you need to know.  Take a screenshot of this episode, add it to your Instagram Stories, tag @andreasagerlaw let me know your question!
