In this segment, our panelists will cover copyright law. Copyright is a branch of intellectual property law that protects the original authorship of various works such as books, art, music, poetry, software, and architecture. Attorneys who work in this area can work in private firms or inhouse for specific companies or the government. They may specialize in copyright or all areas of intellectual property law such as trademarks and patents as well. Our speakers will share with you their career paths, provide invaluable insight into what skills you’ll need to break into this area, what drew them to it, the pros and cons, and what a typical day in their practice entails.
