Location: Conference Dial-in Number: (641) 715-3840 Access Code: 361467#

About this session: So you have an internet business. Now what? Whether it be a brick and mortar, brick and click (offline and online) or totally virtual you know there are “rules” to running a business. And intellectual property is a huge part of both. Since Content Trumps Almost Everything online (Content is King Queen) then you must know what you are allowed to do with that content. Where you can get the content, how you can use the content, how you can protect your content and much more. By knowing your rights and the rights of others online you can keep your website free from legal issues and create a totally unique experience for YOUR Audience. And ultimately do more business on the web.

In this session Lauren will discuss:

1. The difference between a trademark, copyright and patent

2. Why you should register your Copyright, what is (and is not) protected by copyright;  what is a “work made for hire or assignment”  what is (and is not) protected by copyright; and use of material from others (fair use or not?).

3. Liability for invasion of rights of privacy – disclosure of private facts; false light (libel/slander); rights of publicity.

4. The Legal Pages that are required to do business on the web and what to include in those pages.

5.  What you can do if you find someone infringing on your copyrights/trademarks, etc.

6. How you can protect your websites.

7. The current trends/legislative or international IPR initiatives that are pending that may impact upon ecommerce in the near future
