SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Brooks Kushman shareholder Anna Robinson is speaking to students at the College for Creative Studies on Thursday, April 4, 2019 about legal issues for artists at the invitation of Creative Many, a statewide organization that works to develop and connect creative people, creative places and the creative economy. Robinson’s workshop will focus on the different types of intellectual property protection, common misconceptions about fair use and the public domain, consequences of posting your work on social media, visual artists’ rights, agreements and more.
Robinson’s practice focuses on trademark and copyright protection and enforcement, and entertainment law. She has a background in theatre performance and a passion for the arts.
