Helium.com co-sponsoring Fairs and Festivals Copyright Writing Contest
As artists how do we make sure our work is protected? What do you do if someone photographs your work or designs and then replicates it? How do you ensure you retain the rights to your creative property even though you're selling a craft, painting, poem or photograph? FairsandFestivals.net is partnering with Helium.com to sponsor a writing contest to help answer these questions more in-depth. With the proliferation of the internet, and simple access to inexpensive manufacturing companies, the protection of artistic copyright has to potential to impact small producers.
