During this informative CLE program you will learn how to conduct an "intellectual property audit" for pro bono art and entertainment clients. The discussion will include how to best help your client properly acquire rights to all works of authorship embodied in their creative content, whether literary work, visual art, compositions or recordings, motion pictures, or combinations thereof.

The webinar will include valuable practice tips to help your client’s document ownership of their work from inception to completion, and demonstrate strategies to help you parlay pro bono service into paying client development. It will also cover how volunteer legal service can help you "get what you give," in the form of both personal and professional rewards.

CLE materials will include sample pro bono engagement letters, client intake check lists, and sample contract acquisition clauses (much of this information may be useful in connection with paying clients as well).
