For the third (and final) destination in this year's Law School series, a panel of legal experts will shed light on some of the more complex issues facing creators and businesses and touch on compelling issues popping up in the law and how they apply to comics and the pop culture scene. Noted attorney Michael Lovitz (author of the classic The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book) is joined by professors Marc Greenberg and Betsy Rosenblatt and attorneys Jeff Trexler and Larry Zerner for another rousing, interactive discussion focused on real-world issues of importance to fans and creators. The panel will share their insights and knowledge and provide practical advice concerning fans and fair use; legal issues for fan creations (fan fiction, fan art, fan films, etc.), and concerns for creators using "loan-out" companies as seen in the currently pending Friday the 13th lawsuit. Note: The Comic Book Law School seminars are designed to provide relevant information and insights to practicing attorneys as well as practical tips to creators and other professionals who may wish to attend. (This program is approved for 1.5 credits of California MCLE.)
