Free Gallery Talk on Nov 3:

"Basic Legal Info for Artists" with WFU Community Law & Business Clinic
Wednesday, November 3, 3pm at AAWS

Join us for a robust Q&A session with the WFU Community Law & Business Center about legal issues that arise for artists

This presentation and Q&A session will cover the often-times confusing legal principles that an artist working in any medium needs to know. We will discuss basic copyright law, explaining what rights you really give up when you sell your work, and how best to protect those rights in future deals. In addition, we will cover basic trademark issues and business entity selection and formation. Protecting work online, contracts, copies, and other common questions.

The Wake Forest Community Law and Business Clinic provides legal assistance to small local businesses and non-profit corporations. Headed by Steve Virgil, the Clinic is staffed by third-year law students, all of whom are certified to practice in the state of North Carolina under his supervision.

Even if you have attended a session in the past, info covered will be based on your questions, so bring a specific topic. All areas of art (literature, music, visual art, etc) are open to discussion.

COST A $5 donation to AAWS is suggested. This event is open to the public.
