Clothing, posters, pillows, candles, key chains, stickers, dolls – the list of merchandise items is long, varied, and represents a major revenue stream for artists and rights holders. Copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, and rights of publicity – these and more are implicated in the wild world of merchandise.
- What do artists need to know before allowing their work to be used on merchandise?
- What are the different kinds of agreements that artists can make with merchandisers?
- Are there ways for artists to enforce their rights if they discover unauthorized use of their work?
Join CLA and attorneys Scott Burroughs and Stephen Doniger for a presentation covering the intellectual property and contract issues involved in using visual art on merchandise.
