IP attorney Kohel Haver answers the question, "What is public domain?"
- [Instructor] We know infringement can happen…in many different ways.…It could be a sole proprietor copying images…from your website or someone gaining access to your design…through a creative proxy service.…It could be a business entity selling products…in their stores with your artwork on it…or merely a fanatic who loves your work…and gets your motif tattooed on their body.…All of these infringements have one thing in common:…individuals interacted with your work in public venues…and made a free will choice to use it without permission.…
As creatives, we have to share our work in public visually…in order to market our services…and land new projects and clients.…We want people to be able to see what we can do…so they'll hire us to do that type of work for them.…When it comes to your website or any online portfolio…or social media platform, I believe…you get the work you show,…so creating and sharing your work in public is normal.…But it doesn't mean your work isn't or can't be copyrighted.…
So this seems like a contradiction.…
