In this new age of media, have you ever wondered how to share, promote and pimp your photos and videos using social sharing tools, but maintain your rights to them? What if someone wants to buy, license, use, or copy your work?

__Ever had a photo or video of yours “go viral” or get liked, +1’d, or retweeted like crazy? If not, do yo wish you had?
__Ever had your photo swiped from your site or social feed and found it being used by someone else?
__Have you ever wondered about watermarking, tracking photos, or overlaying your name in the bottom corner to drive traffic?
__Ever used a Creative Commons (cc) license or wondered if you should put a copyright (c) sympbol on your photos?
__Ever want to make money with your photos? Then you’ve gotta know about this stuff.

If you can answer YES to any of these questions above – I urge you to tune in to the upcoming mission critical episode of chasejarvis LIVE, we’ll be addressing these questions head-on in a LIVE, interactive format.

    Unfortunately, they differ by country.

      they differ by country only in a technical and legal sense, but not in the sense that matters most which is awareness, intent and strategy IMHO

    Damnit! I have to work. Is there any chance I can get a copy of the show? I’m a Behavioral ECON major and my senior thesis is on copyright reform.

    I’d love to hear the 500px CEO address censorship and the arbitrary way that they rate and tag photos as NSFW (Not Safe For Work). A LOT of “gaming” goes on in what is otherwise a brilliant photo sharing site.

    This can’t be missed, awesome contest.

    Great episode…thanks for keeping the flow of info and creativity going.

    One question regurading the Facebook Terms and Conditions.

    How is it that if you post an image on FB you surrender the rights and they are free to do what they want with it? if the work is automatically copyrighted to the creator, then they are stealing in for their own porposes.

    The reason I ask is that I’m assuming a precedent here. For example; My landlord could write in whatever he/she wants on the lease contract…i’e. “She has the rigth to come in and dance with monkeys in my living room every other week.” Even if I signed this, under California law, she can’t legally do so.

    That said, how come Terms and Conditions can override the law??? I would think they don’t.

    Obiously, if i don’t want something share I can reframe from posting. I’m aware of that.

    my best,

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
