I get a lot of questions from clients and students about copyrights and trademarks.
I am not an attorney, so my knowledge is more functional than it is deep (want to know how to file a DMCA takedown request, talk to me), so I generally send people resources and reading that I have on hand. I recently came across a great video on Crash Course’s YouTube channel that breaks all the key elements of copyright law down into understandable components.
Crash Course is an amazing series of videos about all kind of subjects–you want to learn about it, there’s probably a video for it on Crash Course. This one is great for anyone who creates original work and wants to know how and if their rights are protected.
