WLA Seminar on Copyright Lawsuits

When Someone Copies Your Art, Music or Writing...or They Think You've Copied Theirs

No one expects to be involved in a lawsuit. Most people would rather not even think about the possibility of litigation. But what if your client finds that a song or story he or she has written, or a print he or she has created, has been copied without permission? Or if your client receives a cease and desist letter threatening litigation? Join attorney Gregory Goeckner in this discussion of copyright litigation, including how to initiate a suit; jurisdiction; requirements for entry into federal court and the impacts they have on copyright litigation; how to respond if your client is threatened with a lawsuit; and how to counsel your client to avoid litigation in the first place.

The seminar takes place Thursday, January 13, 2011, from 12–1:30 p.m. (registration begins at 11:45 a.m.) at 911 Media Arts Center.
