Building and maintaining a website to market a business, to promote a cause or to just blog an opinion is fraught with intellectual property (IP) issues. Protecting the content and branding on the website is one concern; making sure you are not infringing someone else’s copyrights and trademarks is another. In our globally connected economy where a strong internet presence is necessary for success, trademark bullies and copyright trolls are ever-watching; ready to pounce on unsuspecting infringers.
Kathleen Kuznicki will join an expert line-up of speakers on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for the first WordCamp Pittsburgh. Developers, content creators, designers and anyone interested in WordPress will benefit from Kathleen’s uniquely titled presentation, ®? ™? ©? DMCA? IP? —WTF???. She will discuss exactly what is protected by copyright law and by trademark law; infringement risks that are common to websites (and how to avoid them), and the fair use defense.
WordCamp is a casual, locally organized conference covering everything related to WordPress. WordCamps happen all around the world, and each camp is a unique experience based on the local community.
