Kudos to everyone who submitted questions for the legal Ask Call with Attorney Kyle-Beth Hilfer – what a great call – I learned a lot! Tons of food for thought and ideas to grow and protect your business.
Since this was Kyle-Beth’s third call the audio is available to purchase for $20 thru April 3rd and then goes to $30 after that. Well worth the knowledge and it helps compensate regular guests for their time and expertise.
- The importance of “why” and how that might relate to various questions I’ve seen online about licensing negotiations and royalty audits.

- Do you have to copyright every color way of the same pattern?
- Does the number of images in a copyright registration affect compensation if there is an infringement?

- Can you use other’s art (cartoons for example, Batman, Minions, etc) if you are only doing individual pieces of art for sale and not mass producing or is that a copyright infringement?
- What is the difference between a brand and a property?
- Will allowing non-profits to use art for t-shirts affect other licensing deals?
