Hosted Brown Bag Lunch – Copyright Fundamentals and Licensing
September 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Curricula, videos, computer programs, illustrations, architectural drawings, sound recordings, and data – it is no surprise that UWM faculty create a wide variety of original works. But do you know how to protect these valuable works as intellectual property? Assets such as these are covered under copyright law.
In this Brown Bag Lunch session, intellectual property experts from the Michael Best & Friedrich LLP law firm – Jeffrey Peterson and Laura Lamansky – will discuss copyright fundamentals. Learn about the types of works protected, ownership, registration, rights provided, and more. In addition to copyright law, this session will touch upon unique aspects of licensing copyrighted works for commercialization. Attendees are also invited to bring their questions about copyright to encourage interactive conversation. The session is organized by the UWM Research Foundation.
