Event Details

For writers, it’s difficult to obtain information about protecting rights with creative projects. And if you do, it’s difficult to decipher the “legalese.”

This workshop, lead by writer and attorney Jodé Susan Millman, is designed for writers, and covers the basics of copyrights, trademarks and key provisions of publishing contracts so that you’ll understand the fine print.

In this session, you'll learn: the differences between copyright, trademarks, patents and service marks; the copyright registration process and the case law; the definition of public domain the fair use doctrine; which business entity is best for a writing career; the distinction between the right of privacy, libel and slander; the anatomy of a publishing deal and contract basics; and resources to help you protect your rights.

Jodé Susan Millman, the author of the thriller The Midnight Call, is an attorney with more than 40 years of practical experience in intellectual property law.
