Visual works extend from basic photographs to the drawings and graphics of comic books and video games. Copyright is the main soure of protection for these creative works. Produced and hosted by Professor KJ Greene, this provocative and interactive forum will explore hot topics from transactions to infringement disputes arising from visual works and copyright law. We have an outstanding group of panelists that will parse through the legal issues within these industries. Our panelists include: Stu Rees, an outstanding attorney and a talented comic book artist; Leslie Burns, an indomitable attorney representing photographers; David Lizerbram, a prominent lawyer in the artistic community; and Lacy J. Lodes, a rising young lawyer for video game clients.

Moderated by Professor Jeff Slattery, Director of TJSL's Art and Entertainment Law Project, and directed by Michelle Ribaudo, President of ELS and TJSL J.D. Candidate 2015; the forum will shine light on the fascinating arena of visual works in the digital era.
