Create Your Art, Create Your Brand: Trademarks and Other IP Issues for Creative Artists

With Elizabeth Rest, Esq.

This practical program will provide an overview of trademark and other intellectual property considerations important to creative artists, and will address such questions as: When should you register your work and how do you do so? What specific issues are involved in using trademarks in music, theater, visual art, etc. without permission? How much use is “fair use?” and many other important intellectual property issues specific to the creative community. The program will feature helpful practice tips and an informal, interactive question and answer session.
