ESIG: SOPA & You: Intellectual Property, Copyrights & Trademarks

New perspectives on protecting and licensing creative content.

As professionals working in the creative fields, ideas form the foundation of our business. How we value our creative products, how we license their use, and how those elements fit into our clients’ business strategies and processes create mutual opportunities as well as risks.

SOPA & You:  Intellectual Property, Copyrights and Trademarks is a special program featuring Paul R. Juhasz of The Juhasz Law Firm that will address these issues and more at the IABC/Houston ESIG April 12 meeting.
 
Changes in technology, societal expectations and business practices affect how we need to address copyright, intellectual property and trademark infringement. The national conversation around the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has heightened awareness of many issues surrounding our understanding of intellectual property law and use.  

The program will address: 
  • The correlation between the value of IP and the extent of linkage between the IP and business strategy of a company.
  • How trademarks relate to copyrights and what we need to know.
  • What impact SOPA may have for creative professionals and our clients.
  • The value of copyright registration.
  • What is required to make a copyright infringement case viable.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A, so bring your questions!The luncheon will take place on Thursday, April 12, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at La Griglia, 2002 West Gray, Houston TX 77019.
