Knowledge is power.With image theft rampant, it is vitally important that you know the facts regarding copyright protection and how to effectively exercise your rights.

and others will discuss the following:

Registration: How ToDo It And Why
What To Do When Your Image Has Been Infringed
How and When To Choose An Attorney
