Copyright and Your Content

The rules and procedures around using other people’s work in your creation.

Have you ever used someone else’s image on a blog post? Is the music on your YouTube video your own creation? Have you copied and pasted text from another article? Then you might be violating someone’s copyright.

The rules that surround copyright in the U.S. are many and varied. From the CTEA to the DMCA they cover everything from artistic creations to tractor engines. And with the passing of GDPR and new copyright laws in the EU, there are even more areas that content creators and hosts must to do ensure the protection of the original creator.

Our Marketing Director, Mark Miller, gave this talk to the Coffee and Content meetup group at On Target Media in April of 2019. He spoke in front of a group of around 20 creators, webmasters, and other digital creators.
