This panel explores some of the ins and outs of U.S. law pertaining to the image ownership in a digital age, from the perspective of a lawyer, estate executor, and stock agency. What constitutes "free use"? How does freedom of expression dovetail with an artist's protection of his or her work? Are images more available today or less? As a practical matter, how does one enforce copyright law?

Moderator
Michelle Bogre, Associate Professor and Chair, Photography Department, Parsons The New School for Design, writer and photographer

Participants
Richard Ellis, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Getty Images
Barbara Hoffman, arts, entertainment and intellectual property lawyer
