FOOD WRITERS IN THE LEGAL JUNGLE - OCTOBER 25, 2017
AFJ is pleased to welcome author Joy R. Butler as the host of our next Sound Bites webinar. Butler is a Washington, DC-based media, technology, and licensing attorney who excels at explaining complicated legal issues in understandable terms and proposing practical solutions to business problems. Ms. Butler’s book publications include The Permission Seeker's Guide Through the Legal Jungle: Clearing Copyrights, Trademarks and Other Rights for Entertainment and Media Productions, recently updated and expanded for 2017. She also regularly blogs on media and intellectual property law issues at www.GuideThroughtheLegalJungleBlog.com.
This webinar will address legal issues of interest to food journalists including:
- how food journalists can protect their original material (with an emphasis on available protection for recipes);
- when and how food journalists can permissibly incorporate quotes, images, and real people into their writing; and
- how to determine when bad reviews and online snarking cross the line into actionable defamation.
This webinar will take place on Wednesday, October 25 at 1:30pm EST. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org today.
