Legal Stuff Explained #5: Creativity, Content and Collaboration
What Artists, Designers, and Other Creative Types Should Know About the Law
When: Thursday, April 19th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Where: NYU-Poly Incubator, 20 Jay Str. #313, 11201 Brooklyn
Who: Ilya Kushnirsky and Tudor Capusan
What can you do to protect your creative work product? What steps should you take when collaborating with others or freelancing for clients? What should you watch out for when posting or promoting your work online? This class provides answers that every artist, designer, musician, filmmaker, and other creative person should know, whether you work for yourself, with others, or for others. We cut through the legal jargon with simple and practical takeaways, as well as examples and anecdotes involving Superman, Banksy, Pinterest, SOPA, and other non-boring things.
Teacher 1: Ilya Kushnirsky
For nine years, Ilya was involved with the Wonderland art collective, where he helped artists make their living from their work (and threw great underground parties). He’s also done stints with the Museum of the Moving Image, Dance Parade, and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. Today Ilya runs his own legal practice that helps artists, creative professionals, entrepreneurs, and techies. He collects art, graphic novels, and indie rock, and will talk your ear off about The Hold Steady and French new wave cinema if you let him.
Teacher 2: Tudor Capusan
For most of his life, Tudor has been a musician with a great passion for guitar. He was involved int the NY underground rock scene for a decade and has toured with a signed band. After working at the Indiana Attorney General’s office, Tudor decided to help musicians, photographers, designers, start-up businesses, and other creative entrepreneurs. He understands the creative culture, and he provides practical counseling to those who want to create art or build a business. For fun, Tudor likes to play guitar and be mesmerized by Tommy Emmanuel.
