Denver Botanic Gardens – Morrison Center
6:30 – 8 p.m.
Art, whether a technical botanical diagram or an abstract impressionist flower scene, involves the creation of copyright rights. If you have ever wondered about the basics of copyright law, such as how copyrights are born, what copyright law protects, who owns copyrights, when it is okay to copy, and whether you should register your copyrights, this Café Botanique evening is for you. Join us for an interactive and illustrated discussion of copyright law, which will illuminate these questions and suggest ways that artists can use this information in their day-to-day work.
