    Intellectual Property Laws In the Internet Age – Meetup 1/20/2010 

    What: Intellectual Property Laws In the Internet Age

    When: Wednesday, January 20, 2010 6:30 PM

    Price: $10.00 per person

    10 W. 18th St. 7th Floor
    New York, NY 10011

    Who owns your content on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn? How do you protect your work from being stolen?

    Please join us at this one-day-only lecture and Q & A aimed at addressing these and other online issues and offering tips on how to protect what you have created and placed online.

    Come join other members from Web2Fem, and MeetUp groups From Traditional2Digital, Black Creatives, Digital Creatives to learn how to protect your work and get a chance to increase your professional network with other attendees.

    The event speaker, Kelly Kocinski, was an attorney and Development Director at Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts before forming her solo practice, which focuses on the needs of individual artists and small businesses with a specialization in Intellectual Property (IP) Identification and Protection. She is also a teacher in the Design Management program at Pratt Institute.

    Ms. Kocinski will discuss the state of copyright, trademark, and patent law and how the law is trying to catch up to the technological and content-based advancements of the online world. She will discuss how those working online — whether on social media sites, blogs, or web development — can protect their content, as well as insulate themselves from liability. Finally, there will be a group discussion and Q&A to specifically address the concerns of the audience.

    Space is very limited, please RSVP soon. Please answer the 3 questions when you RSVP; by doing so, you will receive a recap of the lecture shortly after the event. This should be a great event with lots of relevant info!

    RSVP at any of these Meetup groups:

    Google Book Settlement Workshop in NYC on Jan. 20th 

    The Google Settlement — What it means for writers

    A FREE workshop will be held for writers in mid-town New York, Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 2-4:40 p.m.

    Are you out or in? Come get your questions answered.

    Hear the best-informed, best-known authorities on what the second version of the Google Book Search Settlement would mean for writers if it is approved by the court.  The second opt-out deadline is coming up a week after this seminar, so there is still time to figure out what’s best for you, personally, and then to act. This workshop will focus on the settlement and writers — just writers.

    Much of the public debate has settled on other aspects, like orphan books, yet we writers are still confused about what the proposed, new Book Rights Registry would mean for us.

    Sponsored jointly by the American Society of Journalists and Authors, ASJA, the National Writers Union, NWU, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, SFWA.

    FREE but please tell us if you’re coming, either by calling 212-997-0947 or a quick e-mail to asjaoffice AT asja.org. (Put “Google settlement” in the subject line.)

    via Google Book Settlement Workshop in NYC on Jan. 20th.
