Powerpoint Presentations

The Picture Archive Council of America (PACA), a North American trade association representing the interests of the image licensing industry, has prepared a power point presentation that it will make available to the public that educates users of images as well as visual artists on the basics of copyright. Using the Copyright Act, images from real case examples, and images provided by members for discussion purposes, it walks you through what copyright protects and for how long, illustrating topics such as fair use, what is an infringement and what is not, and how the Digital Millennium Copyright Act can be used to remove infringing works from the internet. It is geared to non-lawyers and is presented in a clear and informative way. Slide notes are included to make it easy for anyone to take the presentation to a design class, an ad agency or any other interested organization. The presentation is prepared by Nancy E. Wolff, counsel to PACA and the leading authority in the area of image licensing and the law
