Overview

Why You Should Attend:

IP Discussions with Joshua Simmons is a series of conversations hosted by nationally recognized intellectual property litigator, Joshua Simmons. Each month, Josh is joined by a panel of IP luminaries, leading scholars, and industry insiders. Together, they examine major topics and events in a civil, roundtable format.

For almost two centuries, the world has benefited from the artistry, creativity, and ingenuity of photographers as we know them today. For over a century, it has been the rule in the United States that photographs and photographers are just the type of writings and authors that the Constitution’s copyright clause was intended to incentivize. Yet, despite their lengthy pedigree, the intellectual property laws governing photography remain in flux in the modern age.

What You Will Learn:

  • How are photographs protected by copyright and how has the U.S. Copyright Office assisted in making protection easier for photographers?
  • What are the legal issues associated with photograph licensing?
  • When is it fair use to use a photograph without its author’s permission?
  • What are the legal risks of website embedding?

Who Should Attend:

IP lawyers and practitioners advising on photography should find this program to be informative.
