Essential Law for Designers & Creators of Metal Art
While jewelry and other three dimensional designs may be eligible for copyright protection, the law poses unique challenges for designers working in these mediums. Additional pitfalls can arise when marketing and selling these works. Attorney Venkat Balasubramani , a volunteer with Washington Lawyers for the Arts, will present a 2-hour interactive session designed to help you understand the laws governing the design, creation, ownership, marketing, and distribution of jewelry, sculptural designs, and similar works. You will learn about the following: What is copyrightable and how to increase the chances of receiving protection for a design; creativity requirements for protection including the difference between the expression of an idea v. the idea itself; and creative variations of a pattern in the public domain; Copyright ownership issues including: work-for-hire issues, transfers of ownership; Laws pertaining to the ownership and use of photographs of works; marketing issues and contract issues.
