Copyrights and Trademarks for Writers

Pickard Conference Room

This discussion will introduce writers to two basic intellectual property concepts: copyrights and trademarks as they apply to authors. The session will provide a basic theoretical understanding of the concepts with two practical learning goals: how to avoid infringing on the intellectual property of others and steps to protect one's own work.  Seating is first-come, first-served for this session.

Register once (appreciated but not required) for the entire Writers Conference and come and go as you please. Separate registrations are required to attend any of the Critique Sessions. Check out the Writers Conference schedule at a glance or search our online calendar for in-depth descriptions.
