Event Details

Self-expression and contributing to others in our own personal ways are essential to fulfillment in our daily lives. We each have our own unique abilities and talents. Whether we do so through painting, drawing, writing, singing, cooking, or conversation, we each have a need to express ourselves through our own creative outlets. How does the law treat your self-expression? Why are ideas and expression treated differently? For that matter, why are writing a letter and writing a recipe treated differently as well? What rights do you have in your creative works and your contributions to others? Barron Oda, art and intellectual property attorney, will explore these topics, discuss intellectual property law, and answer your questions.

NOTE: This is a free event for the public.
