While almost every creator will tell you their greatest joy is in their acts of creation, none will argue that equally (or perhaps more) important is earning a living from their efforts. But commercializing creative works is fraught with peril unless you're prepared. Hear from noted attorney Michael Lovitz, author of The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, along with his guests, attorney David Lizerbram and Legion M's COO Terri Lubaroff, for an interactive seminar tackling a slew of more advanced issues facing creators (and the businesses that they work with) as they seek to monetize their creative capital. They will offer insights into a variety of options and opportunities for generating income from your creative endeavors, including: licenses and transfers of rights; key things to know when Hollywood comes knocking; publishing, manufacturing, merchandising, and distribution agreements; understanding key terms in contracts, assignments, and licenses; and how incorporation and marital bliss (or turmoil) may affect contracts and licenses. And are all independent contractors secretly disguised as employees? Please note: The Comic Book Law School seminars are designed to provide relevant information and insights to practicing attorneys, as well as practical tips to creators and other professionals who may wish to attend. [This program is approved for 1.5 credits of California MCLE.]
