The Coastal Arts Guild of CT is partnering with SCORE, the Rowayton Arts Center and the Harry Bennett Library to offer free professional business workshops for artists and creatives.

This workshop is presented by Cliff Ennico, a nationally recognized authority on legal issues in small business, is best known as the former host of MONEYHUNT, the PBS television series. His weekly business advice column appears in dozens of major newspapers and small business websites throughout North America. He is a frequent contributor to Entrepreneur and other small business magazines, has hosted over 100 videos on YouTube, and is the author of 16 books on entrepreneurship and career management.

As artists , writers, photographers and other creatives, we create unique works that become our intellectual property. Do you know what your rights are regarding theft of your work and what rights you have after you sell your work?

Without proper copyright protection, it is almost impossible for an artist, photographer or other creative type to build a unique and recognizable “brand” in the marketplace. Every creative professional needs to know the basics of U.S. and international copyright law.

What is copyright, and why is it important?
What must you do to claim a copyright?
Can I use someone else’s copyrighted work without permission?
Am I protected when I post my work online?
What should I do if I see someone has copied my work without permission?

This is a FREE workshop but pre registration is strongly recommended:
