Protecting and Using Your Copyright – Jeff Sedlik

Are you receiving the full value from your work, or leaving money on the table? Is your work fully protected? How do your copyrights fit into your business plan? Ever struggled with the wording of an estimate or proposal? Do you confidently respond to client requests for “buy-outs” and work-made for-hire terms? Do you know all of the most important factors to consider when quoting fees to your clients? In this presentation by photographer and image licensing expert Jeff Sedlik, you will learn not only how to protect your rights, but how to use those rights to maximize your profits.
