Today we invited in an intellectual privacy lawyer to talk to everyone about copyright, privacy, trademarks, and how to avoid treading on the rules and laws about them. What is fair use argument? How does parody fit in? Is Fan Fic legal?

Mentions in Episode 6:

Official Disclaimer – Although a brilliant lawyer sounded off on these topics, until you pay a lawyer a retainer they are not offering you legal advice. This webcast was merely people sitting and talking about interesting legal topics in publishing and content.

Unofficial advice would be “Always read your contracts before you sign them.”
