About This Workshop
It is critical to protect your intellectual property as a working artist. In this one-hour workshop, led by attorney Adan Jimenez, you’ll learn best practices for sharing your work, how to safeguard your creative property and resources to help understand legal processes. Topics covered will include copyrights, trademarks, and patents. There will be time at the end for a Q&A.
