IPAC presents Wayne Logan: How “Right” is your Copyright, and other, related topics.
Whether writing and publishing is a hobby for you or a professional commitment, Wayne Logan’s presentation on the business, ownership and legal issues that affect your writing and authorship will be extremely relevant. His topics will include Copyright and Intellectual Property law, frequently asked questions, and what’s new in these areas.
Does your book include illustrations, photos and other items of artwork? Are you referencing or quoting from other authors? If so, you need to understand how the rights of others may affect your own work, and how to stay out of trouble!
Wayne will also speak about latest developments in the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation and how it may affect authors and publishers seeking to promote their books.
Wayne is one of IPAC’s most popular presenters. As one of Canada’s leading intellectual property lawyers he knows the legal answers, and as a creative artist himself, knows how to explain in language we can all understand. Bring your questions, your curiosity, and your notebooks!
More about IPAC Meetings
As always, you will have a chance to meet and talk with other authors and self-publishers. Our members tell us over and over how much this has helped them along the writing and publishing journey.
We meet from 8:30 until noon on the last Saturday, September through November and January through May or June. The meeting fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members (cash or cheques only), payable at the beginning of the meeting. A full breakfast is included in the fee (the meal cannot be deducted from meeting fees because our room rental is based on the number of attendees).
Location: Danish Canadian Club, 727 – 11th Avenue S.W. Lots of free parking in the club parking lot, on the west side of the building. Enter through the Club doors on the west side of the building and watch for directions, or check with Club staff.
