The Copyright Corner



Jeannie Hopper speaks with Michelle Bogre, Associate Professor in the School of Art, Media and Society at Parsons and founder of The Copyright Corner. She discusses her decision to go to law school to study copyright and intellectual property in order, largely, to teach it to other artists. This led her to create Intellectual Property Law, the course that has made Parsons one of the only--if not the only--art and design schools with a full fifteen-week course on copyright; the Copyright Center has become the more accessible locus of this information. She speaks to the particularly contemporary challenge of creating a new business model by which artists may be paid for their work in the Information Age without hindering either the availability of any individual artist's work or artistic progression and innovation in general. Along with numerous invaluable pieces of advice on copyright law and protecting one's work, Bogre offers a brief history behind The Copyright Center and the impetus behind its creation, as well as an explanation of the sundry purposes of the site and her future plans for it.
