Country Law Shack Intellectual Property Law: Sketch and Learn

Whether an artist or a writer, you know your work as a creator has value, but you may not be aware of how to protect your work legally.  You may not know what steps to take when you discover someone using your work without permission.  If you draw sketches or publish sketchbooks with licensed properties, you may be wondering if you are exposed to legal action for something you drew with innocent intentions. 

You can learn the answers to the above questions and more on August 23, 2012 at very first Country Law Shack Intellectual Property Law: Sketch and Learn during Sketch Charlotte's regular Thursday night meeting.  Paula Yost, United States Patent and Trademark Attorney, will be giving a free presentation on how to protect yourself, your art, and your talent. You will learn information you would normally have to pay for in a legal consultation and be able to ask questions in an open forum.  In addition, the Country Law Shack will be offering group discount rates for all IP work for qualified group members. 

If you are unable to attend this presentation and would like to have one for your own creators' group, please contact our office to set this up.  We will travel within reason to meet with your group.
