Clothing, posters, pillows, candles, keychains, stickers, dolls - the list of merchandise items is long, varied, and represents a major revenue stream for artists and rights holders. Copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, and rights of publicity – these and more are implicated in the wild world of merchandise. What do artists need to know before allowing their work to be used on merchandise? What are the different kinds of agreements that artists can make with merchandisers? Are there ways for artists to enforce their rights if they discover unauthorized use of their work? Join CLA and attorneys Scott Burroughs and Stephen Doniger for a presentation covering the intellectual property and contract issues involved in using visual art on merchandise.

Registration costs $5 to $25. This workshop runs April 22, 2015.
