Using Images of Others in Your Creative Work Workshop

June 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


There are so-called “rights of privacy” and a “right of publicity” which may govern the “commercial” use of images of people, including celebrities, in your work. A new law is about to become effective in New York State, which for the first time establishes a right of publicity for certain deceased individuals, prohibits the use of digital replicas of certain deceased performers, and also restricts the distribution of “deepfakes” of nonconsenting individuals. Learn the basics of these laws and of the new law in this webinar.

This workshop is geared toward individual artists across all disciplines. We will go over:

• The basic rules governing the use of photos and images of other people in your creative work
• These rules as they apply to celebrities’ images
• When releases are needed
• New changes in the law

Please note that this webinar is now fully booked. Please click here to sign up for the waiting list to be informed of any cancellations.

The online workshops will be recorded and shared with all previously registered participants after the session concludes. It will be available for viewing up to one month after the workshop date.
