Creativity and the Law
Intellectual property basics for artists and creators.
Your intellectual property rights in the work you create could be your most valuable business asset. Whether you’re a visual artist, musician, writer, or creator of another kind, it’s critical that you understand the rights you own in your work, how to protect those rights from theft and enforce them – and even how to commercialize those rights to create revenue. Join McInnes Cooper Intellectual Property Lawyer Patrick Kerr for this 1-hour workshop to learn more about the Intellectual Property basics artists and creators need to know.
Patrick’s practice focuses on litigation and intellectual property. Patrick completed his Juris Doctor at the University of New Brunswick after obtaining an Undergraduate Degree at Acadia University with Honours in Economics and a second major in French.
Patrick is a bilingual Intellectual Property Lawyer and a licensed Canadian trademark agent based in McInnes Cooper’s Moncton office. Secretary of the Board of Directors for Venn Innovation Inc., Patrick regularly represents clients in the startup and technology industries. Patrick brings a keen interest to the practice of law, taking the time to understand his clients’ needs by keying into the integral parts of the challenges they face.
Outside of work, Patrick is passionate about sports, and enjoys basketball, tennis and badminton. When not on the court he enjoys reading and spending time at the beach.
This workshop is presented for free to artists, thanks to the generous support of the Law Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
