CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 14, 2016
The United States’ intellectual property (IP) laws have undergone fundamental changes over the past several years, but more changes may be on the way. Clearly, IP rights foster ingenuity, innovation, and creativity. But some complain that IP rights also enable certain individual and companies to prosper financially more than they should. So, what exactly are IP rights? And how might they affect an individual or a business? Join some of the leading attorneys in the World, as they discuss—in plain English for the non-expert—the basics of U.S. IP laws.
As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.
Episode #3 of the IP 101 series is "Nuts & Bolts of Copyrights," (Register Here), airing on March 17th, 2016 at 2pm CST. Moderator William C. Spence of SpencePC will be joined by Edward R. Hearn of the Law Offices of Edward R. Hearn, Eric Curtin of Crawford Maunu and Greg Sebald of Merchant & Gould P.C. to introduce attorneys and business owners to the basics of copyrights and how to best protect their work.
Copyrights protect all types of works and expressions, not just literary or musical works. Copyright laws give owners the right to reproduce their works and prevent others from doing so. This webinar discusses the nuts and bolts of copyright law and explains what works and expressions are capable of protection. This webinar also discusses the requirements for obtaining copyright protection, the level of protection, and the steps necessary to enforce such rights.
