At the Intersection of Creativity & the Law: Key Legal Issues in Fashion, Film, Music, and the Visual Arts
Tuesday, November 30, 2010 at 7:00 PM (EST)
Are you intrigued by the intersection of law and creative enterprise?
Are you curious about appropriation of other's content in the creation of derivative creative works and the extent of what the law allows?
Are you a filmmaker, fashion designer, artist or musician who is keen to learn more about the legal landscape relevant to your creative work?
Do you work in cinema, fashion, painting, sculpture, or music media and confront contractual, licensing, and intellectual property questions in the course of your daily labors?
Have you heard about new legislative efforts to protect fashion design and are curious about whether greater legal protection for fashion designs will impede the perennial emergence of cutting edge trends?
Are you uncertain about how to secure protection for your creative output?
Are you unsure about the scope of the public domain and what exactly constitutes fair use?
If any of these questions pique your interest, you are warmly invited to attend an exceptional panel discussion and networking gathering at the intersection of creativity and the law.
This panel and networking event will provide arts professionals in different disciplines as well as the broader public with valuable information about recurring legal issues and recent legal developments in the film, fashion, visual art, and music fields.
The panel discussion includes a first-rate line-up of attorneys who will each focus on a particular area within the arts:

On Fashion: Chuck Colman, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP (http://www.pbwt.com/)
On the Visual Arts (apart from Film and Fashion): Andy Lee, ALL-COUNSEL (http://all-counsel.com/site/index.html)
On Music: Bob Donnelly, Lommen Abdo Law Firm (http://www.lommen.com)
After the four presentations have concluded, there will be a short Q&A session, followed by an informal reception.
