Dos and Don’ts When You’re Infringed

In the back of your mind you knew this day would come. You have heard countless stories of others whose works have been stolen. Now it’s your work that has been copied, appropriated…stolen. You are now the “other guy”. So what to do? During his talk Mr. Greenberg will outline the dos and dont’s of being infringed so that you can prepare the case and reach an appropriate resolution.

Session Takeaways:

  • How things work in real life and in the courts versus chat rooms
  • It is just as important to learn how NOT to waste/lose money as it is to learn how to make money.
  • The perpetual mythconceptions of tribal knowledge to which medical illustrators cling. Your comrades know as much about copyright law as lawyers know about pediatric neurosurgery. As tribal myths get repeated, they gain perceived legitimacy despite their utter lack of validity.
