We’re pleased to present the Intellectual Property Fundamentals workshop with speaker Jim Vana of Perkins Coie LLP. Jim is a long-time volunteer in our Arts Legal Clinic and a former WLA Board member. His WLA clients always remark how much clarity they received from talking with him, and he’s a highly-reviewed speaker at WLA workshops.

Whether you’re an artist, or attorney serving clients in creative professions, you will leave this 90-minute workshop with a better understanding of how to protect creative work.

Key points will include:

  • the law as it relates to your work
  • the differences between copyrights, trademarks and patents
  • copyright and trademark registration, including the benefits of registration and the costs, and
  • who owns the copyright in a work created by more than one person and in works created in the course of employment.

Bring your questions – this is an excellent introductory seminar for all artists, and for attorneys whose clients include artists.
