WAW: Copyright, Licensing, and Fair Use

  • Omaha Creative Institute 1419 South 13th Street, Suite 103 Omaha, NE, 68108 United States (map)

Intellectual property rights can be confusing and complicated territory, but it's important to feel your ideas and your work are protected from infringement. Join Daan Erikson, a lawyer at Husch Blackwell with significant experience in trademark, copyright, right of publicity, and right of privacy matters for an entire session of WAW devoted to developing a better understanding of issues surrounding intellectual property. In addition to presenting information every artist should know, Daan will be answering questions and helping us navigate the sometimes murky waters of intellectual property rights.

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each session is devoted to one topic led by professionals in the field and expert community partners. 

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you. 

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Peter Kiewit Foundation.
