  • Intellectual Property – overview of copyright and/or trademark law, as well as how to protect your intellectual property (IP) without infringing on others
  • Intersection of Intellectual Property and Estate Planning – how these areas overlap, and how intellectual property (IP) assets are different from other types of property
  • Literary Law Basics – overview and best strategies for five areas of law authors are most likely to encounter (copyright, trademark, right of privacy, defamation and contract law)
  • Publishing Contracts – tips for negotiating, as well as what to look for (and look out for) in a publishing contract
