SchwartzAs many of us begin to play a more active roll in repurposing our home movies we are not always clear about what copyright laws we need to be aware of.  Does copyright law protect home movies?  Is posting a home movie that you don’t own on Facebook permissionable? What do you need to know about adding music?
