This is short notice but I only learned of this a few minutes ago.
Judy Russell is a certified professional genealogist with a law degree and also is a professor at a prestigious law school. That makes her an ideal person to educate genealogists about copyright issues in genealogy. Luckily, she is willing to do just that in a free online "webinar" on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
Here is the announcement:
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.
Again, this webinar is free and open to all genealogists, courtesy of the Association of Professional Genealogists, so reserve your Webinar seat now. Details may be found at Judy's web site at http://goo.gl/twQzp.
While there, you also might look around her web site called "The Legal Genealogist." It's a good one.
