Copyrighting your work


Recently in one of my groups I belong to, we got onto the topic of copyrighting.  We have all seen this symbol and perhaps even us it ourselves, but do we really know what it means for us? I know I don't understand it completely myself, so I thought I would research it a little. I found a few websites that were quite helpful in understanding what you can do to protect your art.  I hope you find these sites as helpful as I have...Enjoy

I actually get the newsletter from Rene.  Her site is extremely helpful to artists in a multitude of ways.  She is geared mainly for Jewelry Artists but you can never have enough information to guide you in the right direction.

This website I found through a search engine.  I still have yet to read it all, but it looked quite interesting and has tons of information here for us Artists.

Now this site is specifically for us Collage Artists.  I still need to explore it a bit more but it looks like there is a lot to learn here too!

Again, another one I found through a search engine and found there is a ton of information here to learn about copyrighting.  I wish I had more time to read up on all of these sites, perhaps in the near future since I will be off for the summer....So, enjoy these sites and I hope you find answers to your questions here.
