2 minute read

Marketing is replete with intellectual property issues, but many of them are not intuitive and may get overlooked by marketing departments.

From photos and videos to people and music, marketers can fall into common intellectual property issues without even realizing it. In this AMA in the Afternoon session, Venable Partner Meaghan Kent, an experienced intellectual property litigator, will provide insights and understanding about copyrights and trademarks as well as how to spot and address common intellectual property issues before problems arise. Key takeaways from this discussion include:

    • Understanding of ownership and clearance in terms of copyright
    • Recognizing the limitations of the fair use doctrine
    • Identifying and addressing potential problems with user generated content and social media use
    • Spotting trademark and right of publicity issues
