Learn Legal Insights Into Photographers' Rights

Jul 23, 2013 Advocacy

DURHAM, NC (July 23, 2013) – Photographers need to know their rights when they are confronted by police or private security while photographing news, or a documentary, or while on a commercial assignment.

So to help educate our profession, NPPA's general counsel Mickey H. Osterreicher and ASMP NorCal chapter chair Nicolo Sertorio will host a discussion on legal insights into photographers' rights on August 8, 2013, in San Francisco. (See complete invitation here.)

The discussion will help photographers to know what to say and what to do when their rights are being challenged, Osterreicher said.

Additional topics will include copyright and fair use, social media terms of use, and other rights and access issues.

The event is free for NPPA and ASMP members, and only $10 for all others. It will be held at Blue Sky SF, 2325 Third Street #434, San Francisco, beginning at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will take place before the event.

Hosted by NPPA and NPPA Region 10 and the NorCal chapter of ASMP, please contact Sertorio for more information at nicolo@photonicolo.com.
