Barbara Ingrassia is a Wilderness Guide and Risk Manager; she guides people through the murky ooze that is COPYRIGHT in the Digital Age…around the potholes…around the quicksand—that can suck the life out of a business, organization, or project. It’s so easy to search, copy, paste, send—without giving a thought to who owns the rights to that content. (This is especially true with images.) This use can put a group at RISK for charges of copyright infringement—use of content without permission. Such charges can result in expensive litigation—the loss of time, money, and reputation. In addition to being CONSUMERS of copyright-protected content, we are all CREATORS of original content—which we want to protect. As a Certified Copyright Manager, Ingrassia can review marketing materials, websites, licenses, draft Best Practices/ Risk Management /Permission policies, train staff or clients. Awareness of “Copyright Basics” is a form of “insurance” to protect us as we consume and create original content. Ingrassia offers one-on-one consultations, workshops, and seminars. She brings some FUN to the journey through the murky ooze with the message: MANAGE Copyright. Don’t let it manage You.℠
