Still interactive and now five times as informative! For the third (and final) destination in this year's Law School series, this panel of legal experts will shed light on some of the more complex issues facing creators and businesses and touch on compelling issues popping up on the law and how they apply to comics and the pop-culture scene. Attorney Michael Lovitz, author of the classic The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, and his guests–attorneys David Branfman and David S. Lipkus, and law professors Marc Greenberg and Betsy Rosenblatt–will share their insights and knowledge and provide practical advice on topics and issues that range from rights of publicity to the interplay of fandom and fair use. This year's topics are expected to include licensing comics for television streaming services-a risky business?; online and social media IP protection, with Canadian insights; the 12 biggest copyright and trademark myths; Dr. Seuss vs. ComicMix-oh, the decisions a judge will boldly issue; and memes-tributes or infringements? 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.]
