Copyright Law and the Church: Traps and Tips
The law of copyright governs what can be said in the pulpit, sung in the choir, printed in the bulletin or published on the church website. It extends to social networking sites, podcasts of sermons and videos of services posted on YouTube. Ignorance of copyright law is a trap for the unwary. This webinar will address issues such as audio and videotape recordings of religious services, who owns the sermon, what pictures can be posted on your website, and insuring against infringement risk.
David Posteraro, Intellectual Property Partner at Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz PLL and Junior Warden of Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, Ohio will help educate you on what copyright law is, how you can protect your church against claims of infringement and protect your own intellectual property assets.
