You have a great idea for a new comic or business venture but are puzzled by the age old question: what should I do? If you are an emerging business, artist, author, software or mobile phone application creator, you will learn how to protect yourself and your creations. This panel will discuss everything an emerging business needs to do. In this seminar, you'll learn how to protect your intellectual property, the legal nuances of landing a publishing deal or becoming famous, forming a corporation, tax implications, website creation, work-for-hire agreements, an overview of copyrights, trademarks, and Fair Use, what to do if someone is improperly using your creations, and how to avoid improperly using someone else's works.
