Intellectual Property Essentials - Washington Lawyers for the Arts

Thursday, March 25th, 2010, 12:00 noon - 1:30 PM

As an artist or person working in a creative field, it's important to understand the law as it relates to your work. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of intellectual property law will help you to protect your work and avoid disputes with other parties.

Mark P. Walters is a patent attorney with extensive experience in complex intellectual property cases, including asserting and defending claims of patent, copyright, and trademark infringement, as well as false advertising.

Mark will teach you the differences between copyrights, trademarks and patents. You'll also learn about copyright and trademark registration, including the benefits of registration and the costs. You'll learn about who owns the copyright in a work created by more than one person and works created in the course of employment.

Do you ever use someone else’s work? Mark will teach you how to decide when it is alright to use another person’s work, and how much of it can be used. And, when people or company logos show up in your work, you should know how to acquire appropriate releases. Have you ever felt that someone else has used your work inappropriately or without permission? You’ll learn the basics of copyright infringement: when you think someone has stolen from you, or when you’re accused of infringing on someone else’s copyright.

Bring your questions. An excellent introductory seminar for all artists, and for attorneys whose clients include artists.

I sure would have loved to have some of Charlotte Mann's wallpaper in my first studio would have made the lack of furniture and view much more bearable.

Moss Art

I would love to decorate an old brick building with an allover print made out of moss...reminiscent of kitschy velour wallpaper.

Wanna make some moss art of your own? Here's how.
