Skin Deep - Copyright Issues in a Tattoo Culture and IP Section Summer Social (immediately following)

June 8, 2017, 4-7 p.m., State Bar of Georgia and The Glenn Hotel, Atlanta

Please join the Copyright Committee of the Intellectual Property Section of the State Bar of Georgia at the State Bar Conference Center for an engaging and interesting panel discussion on the application of copyright law to tattoos and then join the Intellectual Property Section for cocktails at the beautiful Glenn Hotel.

In recent years, copyright issues have been asserted with respect to tattoos featured on individuals in advertising campaigns, in movies and in video games, raising interesting questions related to authorship, ownership and licensing and the applicability of copyright to this unique art form. TheSkin Deep CLE will feature a panel of copyright practitioners discussing, among other things, the rights of tattoo artists, their clients, and third parties as they relate to ownership, infringement, and use of tattoo art and how cultural norms affect the use of copyright protection in the tattoo industry. The panel will be introduced by Alcide L. Honoré, of Honoré Law, LLC, and will be moderated by Lee Morin, of MORIN Entertainment Law. Panelists will include T.J. Mihill, Partner, Cannon, Mihill, & Winkles, LLC; Lisa Moore, Principal, The Moore Firm, LLC; Rob Hassett, Member, Hassett Law Group, LLC; and D. Jelani Miller, Founding Member of The Miller Law Group, LLC.

After the panel, the Intellectual Property Section will be hosting a Summer Social at the Glenn Hotel, where participants can enjoy cocktails, conversation with colleagues and networking.
