The Dramatists Guild is thrilled to share the first video in our brand new #DGuknow series, an office-wide collaboration that seeks to break down confusions and misconceptions regarding the business of dramatic writing, making the information more easily accessible to dramatists like you.
First up: #DGuknow: Copyright 101 For Dramatists.
Copyright is at the center of what it means to be a working writer in theatre today. But what exactly does that mean? Amy VonMacek, DG Manager of Business Affairs, sat down with Deborah Murad, DG Director of Business Affairs, to learn more about what copyright is, what it isn't, and what it means to you as a working professional. Watch Deborah explain why copyright is so important, what is protected under copyright, how to protect your copyright, and more!
