It’s every writer’s nightmare. You read something that is just way too familiar, and it’s attributed to someone else. What do you do?
Maybe it’s your own work that doesn’t pass the sniff test. What exposes you to infringement claims, and how do you avoid pitfalls?
But wait! There’s more! What about that satirical rant you made on your blog? Or the character you put in your story that was heavily inspired by your (former) pal’s main character?
This session will make you think about inspirations, ideas, and words. It will introduce you to the ways writers can protect their work and themselves and will provide a basic understanding of current laws by highlighting recent cases. It will not, however, keep you out of trouble if you make an unwise decision.
