Will you ever own anything you make? IP Law and the New Economy - Sept BKTK

Hey everyone,

It's the end of the month, so it's time for another BKTK Meetup! 

This month's topic:

What does ownership mean and does it matter anymore?  Resident lawyer Philip Kimball will present a brief overview of current IP laws, some of the most compelling arguments for and against changing the laws (and/or enforcement), and how all of this applies to the digital community.  He'll include some crucial things to watch out for when signing contracts, starting companies, and creating content.  All of this, of course, should definitely provoke some questions, discussion and...dare we say it...friendly arguments?  If we're lucky, we might even hit on an answer or two...

We'll be meeting at Bitmap Creative Labs, as always, and it's strictly BYOB.  We'll have cups and plates and some snacks, but the drinks are on you.  There are numerous bodegas and an organic market nearby, so feel free to grab beer, wine, soft drinks, etc.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to this month's Meetup because I will be getting married a couple days later.  (Wish me luck!)  So, Nick Robalik of Bitmap/HERO will be taking over hosting and moderating duties.

Hope you all can make it and looking forward to hearing about the discussion!

    Great Meetup! Hearing what Phil (and another lawyer who happened to attend) had to say about how we can protect ourselves and our creations was extremely helpful and informative.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
