For writer and artists, it's difficult to obtain information about protecting your rights in your creative projects. And if you do, it's difficult to decipher the "legalese."
In this workshop designed for writers, we'll cover the basics of copyrights, trademarks and key artistic rights so that you'll understand the fine print without having a law degree.
In this session, you'll learn:
- The differences between Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and Service Marks
- The Copyright Registration Process and the CASE law
- What is the Public Domain?
- What is the Fair Use Doctrine?
- Which Business Entity is best for my writing career?
- Should I license or sell my work?
- Resources to help you protect your rights
