On Friday, April 26th at 10am Pacific / 11 am Mountain / noon Central / 1pm Eastern I will be co-presenting a live 90 minute CLE program called “IP and the Comic Book Superhero“, sponsored by the ABA Section on Intellectual Property Young Lawyers Action Group, the ABA Young Lawyers Division, the ABA Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries, and the ABA Center for Professional Development. My co-presenters are Brad Desnoyer, associate professor at the University of Missouri School of Law and previous guest post author here at Law and the Multiverse; Janet Fries, of counsel at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP in DC; and Martha L. Voelz, a solo attorney in New York. The moderator is David Postolski, a patent attorney at Day Pitney LLP in New Jersey.
The program will cover many aspects of IP law, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, publicity rights, and their tax implications with examples and inspiration drawn from both fictional superheroes and real-world superhero-related IP. We hope you can join us!
