Is your company on the cutting edge of social media news, sports, weather or entertainment?  Do you have a team of creative professionals that creates and distributes several creative content pieces per month, yet you still have this "nagging uncertainty" about the parameters of copyright "fair use" law?  Our firm represents large YouTube video creators and we advise on copyright, fair use, first amendment, parody and other legal issues.  We offer fair use online webinars designed to help your team better understand the confines of federal fair use law and how you can push it to the max to help you legally build your YouTube channel.  Copyright strikes and infringement demand letters can suck when you get them, but if you are prepared to defend your case, the stress level goes down.
