NYWW Risky Business: Legal Liability when Writing about Real People
RISKY BUSINESS: How to Assess your Legal Liability when Writing about Real People and Corporations

Does artistic theft lead to new works of art, or to lengthy (and costly) visits to court? Join attorney at law Ryan Fox, as he addresses this increasingly important question in the age of Dorland v Larson (see Who Is the Bad Art Friend? NYT). Counselor Fox will look at law and liability through the lens of this and other recent cases. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions (in the chat).

Ryan Fox is of counsel at Lyons & Salky, LLP, where he provides counsel to individuals and businesses on a wide range of matters, including book publishing, motion picture and television, copyright and trademark, and content clearance and fair use. Before joining the firm, Ryan was Policy & Advocacy Director at the Authors Guild, where he focused on copyright law and the publishing industry, drafting numerous policy papers on issues such as fair use, moral rights, and internet piracy, and assisting members with issues regarding their publishing contracts. He has spoken at bar association, government, and publishing industry events on topics such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, fair use, developing digital markets, and extended collective licensing. He has also worked on entertainment industry contracts as an attorney at HBO, and has held internships at the Guggenheim Museum and Sterling Lord Literistic.
