FREE Publishing Law/Book Contract Seminar

Someone just sent this to me and I thought I would pass the word along to all you who may be interested:

Utah Lawyers for the Arts, in cooperation with the Salt Lake Art Center, presents:
SATURDAY, MAY 14, 1 - 4 p.m.
20 So. West Temple

Learn about book contracts, how they protect you, and how they donʼt. What rights do you need to write about someone and to use othersʼ writings, photographs and other images? When do you have to worry about getting sued?
  • Books and the future of the publishing industry
  • What you can expect in a book contract and what you can negotiate
  • Copyright, permissions, fair use, trademark
  • Ghostwriting and works for hire
  • Defamation
  • Street law: law for life

William J. Evans, shareholder, Parsons Behle & Latimer
Susan Vogel, former shareholder, Jones Waldo, Holbrook & McDonough, owner, Pince-Nez Press

Bill Evans practices in the areas of general litigation, copyrights and entertainment law. Mr. Evansʼ copyright and entertainment law practice evolved from his interest and professional experience in music composition and production. He is a past assistant conductor of the University of Utah Orchestra and Snowbird Arts Festival Orchestra, and has composed and recorded music for records, films and a number of award winning television and radio commercials. In his legal practice, Mr. Evans has represented authors, publishers, composers, recording artists, photographers, visual artists, screenwriters and filmmakers in a variety of transactional settings and in litigation before the United States Copyright Office and in the state and federal courts.

Susan Vogel is the owner of a small independent press founded in San Francisco in 1995.

This event is free and generously hosted by the Salt Lake Art Center. Take TRAX to the Temple Square Station, or park (fee) at the Marriott across the street.
