Facts, Photos and Fair Use: Copyright Law for Genealogists
25 April 2012, 9:00p.m. EDT

Presenter: Judy G. Russell, CG

Materials and records created by others are the bread-and-butter of genealogy. But whether copyright law allows use of old photographs, reports and articles can be murky at best. Join "The Legal Genealogist" Judy G. Russell as she sheds light on what’s copyrighted and what isn’t, when and how copyrighted materials can be used, and how to handle copyright issues with our own clients.

About the Presenter:

A Certified Genealogist℠ with a law degree, Judy G. Russell blogs as "The Legal Genealogist" and writes and speaks on a variety of genealogy topics. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the Genealogical Speakers Guild, and has been published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the National Genealogical Society Magazine.
