This is a fascinating and informative look into copyright, copyright registration, fair use, public domain, the difference between giving credit and getting permission when using someone else’s work, and so much more. Soon

Kathryn also pointed listeners to an article on her site about fair use (https://creativelawcenter.com/fair-use-guidelines/), a chart on Cornell University’s site about determining public domain works (https://copyright.cornell.edu/publicdomain), an article about museums who give away images of public domain works (https://creativelawcenter.com/museums-open-access-images/), and She also shares several reasons why you should register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office (https://www.copyright.gov/registration/).

She also shares several reasons why you should register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office (https://www.copyright.gov/registration/). And one of them, she says, is that soon the Copyright Claims Board will open as an alternative to going to federal court for copyright disputes so long as you have registered the disputed item.
