Controlling, Protecting and Profiting from Your Work: Copyright, Trademark & Licensing for Tattoo Artists & Collectors.
Saturday 9/17/2011 5-7
Who owns your tattoo? Is it you . . . or your client? Do you need to copyright your work? How is a copyright different from a trademark? How can you protect your art from being used without permission by media, corporations and others? How can you protect your studio’s name, logo and reputation? This seminar will provide you with information on understanding the basics of copyright and trademark as it applies to artists and collectors.
In addition, artists more and more are finding alternative avenues for generating revenue from their artwork, image and even endorsements – this seminar will provide you with information to understand how to control the use and licensing of your work and image as well as understand the issues you may confront and how to be prepared to maximize your profits and best protect your interests before signing away any of your rights.
Attorneys John Kastelic and Marisa Kakoulas will break down US copyright, trademark and licensing law as it relates to tattooing and answer your questions in plain language that you won’t need a law degree to understand. The multi-media presentation will include real world examples, informative handouts, sample contracts, and a Q&A.
Mr. Kastelic has more than 25 years in private practice counseling diverse clients such as Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, Zynga, the San Francisco Chronicle, Warner Bros., Malpaso Productions/Clint Eastwood, NBC-Universal, Paramount and many others. Ms. Kakoulas has been practicing law for 15 years and is the author of the tattoo culture blog Needles & Sins (www.needlesandsins.com) as well as numerous feature articles in INKED, Skin & Ink and Total Tattoo. He book “Tattoo Law” is forthcoming.
