Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts Bootcamp

Calling all artists & arts organizations – the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts invites YOU to sign up for Bootcamp!

As part of their mission to promote a vibrant local arts community, the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts periodically presents “VLA Bootcamp” for the arts community to learn more about important, basic legal issues for artists.

VLA Bootcamp Part II: “Intellectual Property: Basics & Real Life Application”
Dec. 3 4:00-5:00 p.m.

In Part II on Dec. 3, our panel of VLA attorneys will lay down the foundation of IP basics: copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets. Which form of IP is intended to protect creative works and where to start to identify what you need? What are some of the pitfalls to avoid in using copyrighted artwork and music from the internet? After covering the basics of protection (both for your own work and to avoid violating others’ rights), our panel will discuss common IP issues and fact patterns that have arisen in real-life VLA applications over the years, and how they have handled them as volunteer attorneys
