Webinar: Copyright Basics for the Generalist In-House Counsel




March 28, 2018 12:30PM–1:30PM


What does the generalist in-house counsel need to know about copyright? While patents and trademarks often receive the lion’s share of an organization’s intellectual property focus, copyrights comprise a critical third prong to a healthy overarching IP strategy – even for companies whose products and services involve little or no content creation.
