Intellectual Property Basics
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 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.
You'll learn 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.
You'll want to know when it's alright to use some else's work, and how much of it can be used. And, when people or company logos show up in your work, you'll need to know about how to acquire appropriate releases. And you'll want to know something about 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.
