Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Atlanta attorney Steven G. Hill spoke to videographers, marketing professionals, and business owners at the recent Atlanta Internet Video Marketing Association (ATIVMA) conference. The event was held at Van Gogh Studios in Smyrna, Georgia, and was also streamed over the Internet via Tony Hale of Performance PC.
Hill’s session started with a very valuable discussion of the differences between commonly confused intellectual property terms, such as copyrights, patents, and trademarks. He then covered general legal concepts regarding IP rights with respect to video and music, and specifically their use on the internet. The presentation closed with an enthusiastic question and answer session that focused on ways to protect created works and how to avoid infringement claims.
Donna Davis, President and Founder of ATIVMA, said Hill’s presentation was very well-received by all attendees and those watching online. “Copyright and licensing issues affect our members and their clients every single day,” said Davis. “Having Steve share his extensive knowledge and real-world experience will help our members protect their IP rights in work product, and also avoid expensive legal issues in the future.”
Hill believes it is critical for videographers and other media professionals to have a strong working knowledge of copyright law as it relates to their work and the work of others. Presenting to ATIVMA was also one way for him to fulfill his law firm’s commitment to informing the public about important IP legal issues in the digital age. “Our firm has seen the best and worst cases involving intellectual property protection and infringement,” said Hill. “Each one reminds our legal team how a little planning and diligence can help individuals and businesses avoid IP problems in the future.”
