Legal Protection for Freelancers 2019

June 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Attorneys Jennifer Calcagni and Wesley Cain will present a workshop on legally protecting your graphic art, photography & other digital content at Upward Hartford.

The workshop will focus on:

  • When and how should an artist go about starting a small business? Where do we even begin to file the correct paperwork?
  • What are the pros and cons of selling your art online with vendors like Storenvy or Society6? What about selling your art and items at conventions or other events?
  • How can you protect your artwork in the age of digital piracy, screenshots and ripoffs? What actions can you take should you find out your work has been stolen or misused?
  • What is some advice when drafting up contracts especially if you plan to work on a Kickstarter project?
  • What are the pros and cons of selling your work to stock image sites like Adobe Stock or iStock? What is the deal with royalties?
  • Are sites like Patreon a viable source of extra income, or is it not worth it when you consider the fees associated with having a tax ID and trying to do things above-board?
