What Artists Need to Know About Copyright and Intellectual Property
Copy that! What Artists Need to Know About Copyright and Intellectual Property
with Luke Blackadar, deputy director of Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston
Friday, November 18, 12-1:30 pm MT
In this session, we’ll cover the basics that artists and creative businesses should know about Intellectual Property. While we’ll briefly introduce the four major varieties of intellectual property—copyright, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets—we’ll focus primarily on copyright and trademark. Attendees can expect to leave with a foundational understanding of what copyright and trademark are, what they protect, the rights they provide, and why they’re important. Time permitting, we may also briefly discuss intellectual property licensing.
