Battling copyright infringement and other survival tips for artistsAs some of you know, I have been battling copyright infringement recently.  I’m winning, but it is a challenging situation and one I hope you don’t encounter with your own art. If you do, I want you to be prepared. That is why I am giving this talk to the Brazos Valley Art League on Monday, and I will be posting some helpful information and tools for artists here shortly. Please check back soon – my goal is to some great resources including a sample DMCA letter and reference links available here by Monday.
