For artists and arts organizations, creating or commissioning a work of fine or practical art is just the beginning. To protect the ownership of the finished work, it is essential to learn about trademarks, copyrights, design patents, and work-for-hire agreements. An expert panel of intellectual property attorneys will explain these concepts using examples that will be familiar to artists and arts organizations. The concepts learned in this workshop will also be useful to nonprofits and small businesses.
Featuring attorneys from Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto and the Community Development Project of the Legal Aid Society
Attendees may be eligible to participate in a future legal clinic and meet individually with an attorney to discuss IP issues. Space is very limited. Details will be provided at the workshop.
