Because of COVID-19, many performing arts organizations are considering live streaming events or presenting prerecorded performances online, but there are many legal issues for presenters and artists to consider before moving into this new realm of arts programming.

On Wednesday, September 16 from 12-1 pm, Georgia Lawyers for the Arts (GLA) and Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA) are presenting a webinar on the Legal Issues of Live Streaming.  This session will present a broad overview of the issues performing arts organizations and artists should consider before live streaming or presenting taped events.  Participants may ask questions of the presenter.

The training session will be presented by Kelly Bray.  Kelly oversees the Georgia PATENTS program and manages GLA’s legal services.
