And other important questions facing creators and business owners each day in our uber-connected world. Creators aren't the only ones facing potential problems and issues -- publishers, distributors, retailers, and even the ultimate consumers can find themselves facing legal issues they never expected. Infringements, misuse, tarnishment, dilution, knockoffs, lawsuits, satires, parodies, fair use, blogs, podcasts, tweets, and cybersquatters are just some of the many potential problems that may arise once creative works and products become accessible to others. Noted attorney Michael Lovitz, author of the sold-out The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, addresses some of the more advanced (and often complicated) issues facing the creative community, particularly in light of the ever-expanding worlds of new media. And this time, he's not alone, as attorneys David Branfman, David Lizerbram, and Marc Greenberg join him toshare insights into some of the more interesting and cutting-edge legal issues faced by the creative and business communities. Plus, time permitting, they'll discuss recent legal decisions and pending cases that are likely to affect the field of popular culture and how they might play an important role in your creative and business plans. Note: The Comic Book Law School seminars are designed to provide relevant information and practice tips 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.]
