Trademarks and Copyrights

Protecting your ideas and safeguarding your print, video and audio work has never required more vigilance than today, when many social media users share whatever content they wish without thinking twice.

Whether you’re a designer, filmmaker, photographer, actor, podcaster, writer — anyone whose digital assets can fall out of your control — you must be prepared to take charge of your content. You need to know:

  • What is “fair use” and what is out-and-out infringement?
  • What are the policies affecting Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, et al.?
  • What current rulings may affect your business?
  • What hurdles lie ahead in the new year?
  • What resources should you have on speed dial?

We’ll get all the answers from Daliah Saper, Principal Attorney at Saper Law in Chicago, at C3’s January meeting. Daliah has handled many high-profile cases and regularly comments for ABC News, CNBC, Fox News, NPR and WGN. She’s been named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers magazine nine years in a row, and is nationally recognized as a leading Media and Entertainment lawyer. Recently, Daliah was named to Crain’s Chicago Business’s 2017 list of “60 Most Influential Women Lawyers”.

Remember, it’s not just your content: it’s your livelihood that’s at stake. So don’t wake up one day soon to find that someone else is profiting from your work. Be sure to join us for this must-attend program.
