Tacoma: Intellectual Property Essentials
TACOMA: As an artist or person working in a creative field, it's important to understand the law as it relates to your work. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of intellectual property law will help you to protect your work and avoid disputes with other parties. Perhaps you've attended seminars in the past where the issues were too complex and you felt lost? Or, perhaps you just haven't given it much thought until now? In either case, this Brown Bag seminar is for you.
Rebekah and Wade will explain the differences between copyrights, trademarks and patents. You'll also learn about copyright and trademark registration, including the benefits of registration and the costs. You'll learn about who owns the copyright in a work created by more than one person and works created in the course of employment.
Do you ever use someone else's work? Rebekah and Wade will teach you how to decide when it is alright to use another person's work, and how much of it can be used. And, when people or company logos show up in your work, you should know how to acquire appropriate releases. Have you ever felt that someone else has used your work inappropriately or without permission? You'll learn the basics of copyright infringement: when you think someone has stolen from you, or when you're accused of infringing on someone else's copyright.
Bring your questions. An excellent introductory seminar for all artists, and for attorneys whose clients include artists.
