What Every Designer Needs to Know about IP & Business Law

If your experience was like that of most design professionals, your education focused more on “design” than “professional.” You rely on the legal rights in what you create, and the legal rights of others, to build a business, yet few design professionals are taught much of anything about those rights. That leaves you and your business vulnerable to everything from failing to recognize lucrative opportunities to unwittingly infringing someone else’s rights.

Attorney Gretchen McCord will explain how you can minimize potential risks and maximize opportunities by understanding key aspects of intellectual property and business laws.
