Architects and Intellectual Property – Protecting Your Plans and Designs: Copyrights, Trademarks and More
with Jim Archibald
November 20, 12:30 – 1pm ET
By enacting the Architectural Works Copyright Protection Act back in 1990, Congress set out to protect and empower those who design buildings “as well as the arrangement and composition of spaces and elements in the design” — to use the words of the statute. Join the very experienced Baltimore trial and business lawyer Jim Archibald on a 30-minute tour of some legal edifices built from that Act in the last few years. The tour includes stops at some recent copyright infringement lawsuits brought by and against architects in the Maryland/D.C. area. Hear how architects can protect (and defend) themselves, along with their designs, plans and drawings, in the dynamic world of today’s intellectual property law
