IP Rights Seminar For Media WorkersAS MORE media practitioners become freelancers, the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) is taking steps to sensitise them about protecting their Intellectual Property (IP) rights. In this regard, the PAJ will host an IP Rights Seminar at its East Avenue headquarters on October 31. The seminar, which will run from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., is aimed at educating freelance practitioners about copyright issues and what they can do to protect their work. The seminar will feature two presentations: Joan Pinkney, Manager, Licensing and Membership at the Jamaica Copyright Licensing Agency (JAMCOPY), will speak on Managing Your Copyright: The Role of JAMCOPY in Protecting Rights Owners. Myers Fletcher and Gordon attorney, Andrea Scarlett-Lozer will focus on copyright issues that arise in Negotiating Employment Contracts for Freelance Journalists and Photographers. PAJ President Byron Buckley notes that the seminar "comes against the background of significant layoffs of media practitioners. So, the PAJ is equipping members to operate as independent journalists." Persons interested in attending the seminar must register with the PAJ office at 631-6390 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
