Please join us for the IP in Entertainment and Media full-day conference September 10, 2015, in Los Angeles! The conference will cover a wide range of cutting-edge and compelling topics specific to intellectual property law in entertainment and media. Watch Inevitable Disclosures, the bi-monthly email newsletter provided by the State Bar IP Section, for more information. We hope to see you there!
Our Group also plans to offer webinars during the spring on: (1) the relationship between the Internet and traditional media, including coverage of pics, gifs, memes, and remixes; and (2) monetization of entertainment media on streaming services (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).
