Intellectual property rights give musicians and artists control over their artistic works (music, sculptures, photographs, etc.) as well as their name and brand. Copyright laws protect creative works, whereas trademark laws govern the naming rights and goodwill in the brand. This important seminar will help artists understand the differences between copyrights and trademarks which help to ensure that creative works and brands are properly protected.
