Renderosity respects and values the creativity of others, and we are proud to be a part of the Copyright Awareness Week celebration. Lets face it copyright laws can be confusing. Even artists with the best intentions have been known to violate copyright laws without realizing they have. To help you, the members of the Renderosity community, to understand and comply with the current copyright laws, we invite you to visit the following links of interest. The US Copyright Office is one of the best sites to learn about the copyright laws that govern Renderosity. Last year, I did a Spotlight on Copyrights which was a lot of fun. We discussed Fan Art, Fair Use, Celebrity Likenesses, Licensing Rights, and more. You can read the quiz questions and see the answers. I would also like to encourage everyone to read our Copyright FAQ. For additional copyright information please visit The Copyright Society of the USA. Their site has an excellent article on copyright basics. Do you have a copyright question or would you like to discuss copyrights? Stop on by the Copyright Forum. We'll be glad to chat with you.
