Intellectual Property Seminar

Patent Attorney Kelly G. Swartz, of Ingenuity Law, will offer a free seminar to artists outlining tips and ways to protect one's intellectual property rights.

The seminar will focus on issues commonly faced by members of the artistic community as they relate to intellectual property. Copyright protection and its limitations, work-for-hire contracts, general ownership of IP, trademarks, and patents (with an emphasis on design patents) will be addressed. After a brief discussion, the group will discuss hypothetical scenarios in which these concepts are illustrated.

Kelly G. Swartz practices in the areas of intellectual property and business law. She received a B.S. in computer engineering with high honors from the University of Florida and worked as an electrical engineer before earning her J.D. with high honors from Barry University School of Law. She is a patent attorney registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and is licensed to practice in the state courts of Florida, the federal Middle District of Florida, the federal Southern District of Florida, and the federal Northern District of Florida. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the Brevard County Bar Association, and a board member of the Brevard Bar Foundation.

All artists are welcome, but seating is limited, so please RSVP to info@eaugalliearts.com or 321-574-2737.
