Imitation isn’t always the most sincere form of flattery. We live in an era when it has never been easier for others to copy/paste your creative work, make it their own … and take credit for it. Are you making effective use of all the tools that exist to protect your nonprofit's brand, and all the hard work you put into making it great? When is it okay to grab something and use it in your work? When is it not okay?

This panel discussion will go beyond the copyright law intro course you took in college. Hear from Advocate Law Group’s Shay Lawson, legal counsel for entertainers and social influencers, on the steps you can take now to protect your content. Get guidance from Lisa Pavento, intellectual property lawyer at Meunier Carlin & Curfman LLC on how to approach an entity that has copied your original work.
