Copyrightlaws.com is delighted to introduce our first Copyright Specialist in Residence, Erin Gurski.
Erin brings her unique perspective to Copyrightlaws.com. She’s the Coordinator and Licensing Agent for Copyright Visual Arts in Ottawa, Canada. Erin was previously the Copyright Officer and Advisor of Intellectual Property at the Canadian Museum of History.
Erin is interested in “helping others navigate the complexities of dealing with copyright in the workplace.” She believes this residency will help her “gain a better understanding of the way that copyright intersects with and influences the work of many professionals in a large array of workplaces.”
Drawing from her work experience in both a nonprofit institution and now a copyright management society, Erin sees this residency as an opportunity to further develop her balanced views about copyright management.
First and foremost, I believe this position would be a way for me to share the knowledge I have gained over years of training in copyright, as well as provide me with a chance to learn from those who have had a different experience in this vast field of expertise.Erin Gurski, Copyrightlaws.com Copyright Specialist in Residence
