"Who Owns the Work?" Discussion with Visual Artist Robert A. Ketchens

Robert KetchensOn April 1, the Intellectual Property Society hosted visual artist Robert A. Ketchens for a discussion entitled "Who Owns the Work?"

Mr. Ketchens discussed his experiences as an artist seeking to protect his intellectual property through contracts and licenses, and the role lawyers play in protecting artists as their clients.

After the presnetation, Mr. Ketchens stuck around to exhibit a few of his most recent works.

It was a wonderful presentation from the perspective of an artist like those who we, as future lawyers, will try to protect.

Hopefully the IP Society can bring back Mr. Ketchens to speak to future IP attorneys.
