ASMP Oregon - The Fight for YOUR Copyright

  • Pro Photo Supply Event Center 1801 NW Northrup St Portland (map)

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!

Your intellectual property—the images you create and own—are being threatened constantly. It’s vital for photographers to support and defend our copyright laws, by registering our work and dealing with copyright infringers.

ASMP Oregon is hosting three speakers—ASMP members all—who are putting on their boxing gloves to help you defend your work.

Jenna Close, past ASMP National Chairperson, will talk about testifying this past September before the House Judiciary Committee in support of the CASE ACT, a modernized Copyright process that offers a more streamlined and affordable process for dealing with copyright infringements.

Andy Batt, past President of ASMP Oregon, will offer his colorful demonstration on how to register your copyright with the Electronic Copyright Office—including recent changes that have dramatically altered the way you can register.

Steve Whittaker, current President of ASMP Oregon, will discuss dealing with infringers by staying out of court and changing them to paying clients.

Please join us in The Fight for Your Copyright.
