Copyright law is never easy terrain to navigate and it seems to get more difficult by the day, which is why one local photography organisation is holding a special education night on the topic next week.
The Advertising & Illustrative Photographers Association (AIPA), as part of its Propel educational programme, will host the Copyright and Licensing Knowledge Share event at Auckland's Minnie Street Studio in Eden Terrace next Tuesday.
The event will give photographers the chance to learn about the principles of intellectual property law as they apply in New Zealand and relating to professional photography.
The informal 'knowledge share' format promises to steer things away from dry lecturing by encouraging attendees to interact, ask questions and share stories with the presenters, who include AIPA Executive Director Aaron K, past AIPA President Ian Batchelor, and lawyer James Carnie, Principal of Clendons Barristers and Solicitors.
The event runs from 7pm until 9.30pm on Tuesday, February 25 and is free for all AIPA and New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography members, with a $10 door charge for non-affiliates – you can check out the Facebook event page here.
