Copyright Law Fundamentals
Drinks & light hors d'oeuvres provided! Learning about copyright law helps artists protect their work and avoid disputes with other parties. Presenter Mark Wittow of K&L Gates will talk with you about what copyright is, what it protects, how it's acquired, and how it differs from other intellectual property rights such as trademarks and patents. Issues you may not have thought of, including what it means if you create a work while working on contract for someone else, will be covered. You'll learn when a use of a copyrighted work is a "fair use," who can do what when more than one person creates a work, and the benefits of copyright registration. You will also learn what you can do if you think that someone has improperly used your work.
Bring your questions. An excellent introductory seminar for artists and attorneys!

Presenter Mark Wittow is a partner in the Seattle office of K&L Gates. His work focuses on intellectual property and technology transactions and litigation including the acquisition, development, marketing and distribution of computer and other types of technologies, media content development and licensing, intellectual property and electronic commerce issues. Mr. Wittow is a frequent presenter on copyright and trade secret law developments and technology transaction issues and teaches the Arts Legal Clinic and Advanced Copyright Law courses at Seattle University law school as an adjunct professor.
