In honor of World Intellectual Property Week, California Lawyers for the Arts and Copyright Alliance present a Copyright Law for the Entertainment Industry workshop.
In this program, intended for those who already have an introductory understanding of copyright law, we will expand that basic knowledge into the realm of the entertainment industry. Many original works are made in collaboration between artists, producers, and studios, which can present murky challenges for copyright disputes.
CLA is pleased to partner with industry leader CBS to discuss this line of copyright law.
If you are registering for this workshop for MCLE Credit, please notify Los Angeles Program Coordinator Renée Reizman: firstname.lastname@example.org
