Copyright is King: Critical Lessons and Best Practices
Presented by Armstrong Teasdale and the Association of Corporate Counsel -- Greater Philadelphia Chapter
When many of us hear of “copyright protection,” our thoughts turn to music and manuscripts. Yet copyright law is much more expansive and underutilized by almost all industries. At its core, copyright law allows authors of an original work to obtain legal protection and exclusive rights over their creations. But it’s not just for those seeking to entertain or educate. Copyright can be obtained on household items, clothing, toys, tools or any tangible item having a degree of creativity. From the subject matter categories set forth in 17 USC Sec. 102 to specific applications, copyright enjoys strong protection in the United States and further includes the rights and protections, for example, provided by the relatively new Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA provides a whole basket of rights, including the often overlooked rights afforded by using Copyright Management Information (CMI). Join Armstrong Teasdale Partner, Ted Behm, and LifeScan Global Corporation Legal Counsel, Teena Amador, as they discuss critical copyright lessons and powerful best practices for leveraging additional protections with CMI.
This webinar is complimentary for chapter members and non-member in-house counsel. One hour of CLE credit will be provided for PA, NJ, DE and MO.
