In today’s economy, lawyers in the copyright and content
industries are assuming more non-traditional legal roles and wearing
multiple hats. The lines we once knew are blurring. Can lawyers
ethically provide both legal and business services? When, where and how
can the "practice” and the "business” of law connect? Join us as ethics
expert Pery Krinsky explores real world examples and interactive hypotheticals
to address practical topics in copyright practice, such as potential conflicts
in representing more than one co-author in negotiating and drafting a
co-authorship agreement; and taking a percentage of ownership or royalties in a
client’s copyright in lieu of full payment.
