Copyright and Trademark Basics for Creatives!

This workshop will cover an overview of copyright and trademark basics. Topics will include what they are, what is protected and not protected, and the significance and benefits of registering your copyright and trademark, both for an artist's own content and those of others they use in their works. Whether you have an existing trademark or copyright or are new to the concept of intellectual property and want to begin learning, this workshop can help with what you need to know.

Presenter: Keith Cooper, Esq.

Mr. Cooper specializes in traditional and digital entertainment, intellectual property, and business law. Although he has nearly 20 years of litigation experience, over the last decade, his primary focus has been on entertainment and business-related transactional work. This includes agreements in such areas as copyright and trademark licensing and merchandising, video game development and publishing, and filmmaking and streaming. He has represented musicians, songwriters, artists, actors, directors, producers, photographers, designers, and internet content creators. 

These workshops are made possible, in part, from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles Department of Arts and Culture; The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the California Community Foundation.  Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
