One of the hottest topics in the legal world today is centered around intellectual property law and the legal issues surrounding creative industries such as art and fashion design. Our New York CLE Art Law and Intellectual Property Package offers attorneys the chance to explore some of the most controversial and litigated issues in the field today, learning from noted experts from the bench and bar, as well as specialists from museums, galleries, academia, media and law enforcement.
For just $399, attorneys can acquire a wealth of knowledge on the following issues surrounding intellectual property law: copyright and fine art; protecting antiquities; government restrictions on artistic expression; looted art, detecting fraud; proving provenance; dealing with artists’ estates and foundations; appraisals; legal issues relating to installation art, biennials and art fairs; deviations from trust indentures; Cy Pres and deaccessioning; as well as ethical considerations.
One of the several courses included in this 23-credit package is ‘Representing a Fashion Client’ – a course dedicated to examining the intellectual property issues of the fashion industry. Much discussed in recent years due to high profile cases between high-end designer brands and mammoth high-street retailers, copyright and fashion is a fascinating topic and one of increasing importance for both veteran attorneys organizing their New York continuing legal education, as well as newcomers seeking ‘bridge the gap‘ courses.
