You want to sample something in a video or song, borrow an image for an art collage, or use a vintage film clip in your act — and you wonder if the estate of Groucho Marx can sue you.
Come find our what’s “fair game” and what’s off-limits. When can you use work produced by other people and other organizations? How do you stay out of trouble? What are the limits and possibilities?
