Demystifying Picture Research

Picture research is a hidden art. In this talk, Mary Goljenboom uses knowledge obtained over 30 years to "demystify" the picture research process:

  • Getting necessary permission from copyright holders & property owners
  • Figuring out the different kinds of sources and how to use them effectively
  • Becoming familiar with copyright and trademark; property, privacy, and publicity rights; and standard business practices.
