What is copyright infringement?

27 Feb

There has been a lot of attention to this lately with some of the online discount logo sites, but the issue goes beyond the obvious. Copyright affects writers, photographers, designers, videographers, illustrators and anyone else in a creative industry. Kent Meyerhoff of Fleeson, Gooing, Coulson & Kitch, LLC will walk us through what is copyright infringement and how we protect against it. Bring your questions and lets have a good discussion on Thursday. You can even bring your clients.

Thursday, March 1, Noon to 1 pm

Bring your lunch (and drink).
