From YouTube creators, to game developers, to artists, no one seems immune from some sort of copyright infringement lawsuit.

This panel looks to demystify copyright, fair use, the DMCA process, and copyright trolls. You will hear first hand from the creators of the people involved in these battles and lawsuits and how you can get some help.
