This session will provide an overview of intellectual property rights for artists across different mediums (from visual art to music to literature) with a focus on copyright. Participants will learn about some of the key legal issues to consider when creating, publishing, or sharing their works of art and things to keep in mind when entering into contracts.
Nico Elliott (she/her) is an associate in the Entertainment Law practice group at the law firm Cassels in Toronto. Nico routinely works with artists and performers using a variety of forms of contractual agreements to protect ownership of artists’ works and facilitate collaboration and opportunities. Before becoming a lawyer Nico worked in the music industry at a prominent independent record label, and music publisher, and in film post-production.
