These are IMPORTANT intellectual property legal/business tips everyone doing business online must know. I share 13 different contract terms and provisions, 35 years of litigation and trial experience, and valuable legal intellectual property tips from top legal experts Pete Salsich III, Karima Gulick and Francesca M. Witzburg.
This presentation was originally given during the virtual global AgoraPulse Agency Summit. It’s titled, “How to Handle Client Contracts, Copyrights, and Other Intellectual Property Issues.” You can learn more about AgoraPulse via my brand page here.
I believe that this 40 minute long value-packed presentation includes some of the best tips I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing from the stage to help online businesses and social media/marketing agencies, protect their business, legal rights and be successful.
During my presentation, I shared the expert advice of three friends including:
Pete Salsich III, Intellectual Property Attorney and Chair of the Entertainment and Media Practice Group at Capes Sokol who answered this question at the 5 minute mark:
“What legal proceedings, equitable relief, and damages should an agency, creator, or brand be aware of or concerned with when it comes to an alleged copyright violation and subsequent litigation?”

Karima Gulick, an Intellectual Property Attorney, Patent Lawyer, Aerospace Engineer, and private pilot who shared her thoughts in response to this question at the 15:50 mark:
“What steps should an agency or creator take to protect the copyright of the content they create?”

Francesca M. Witzburg, an Intellectual Property Lawyer and Partner at Loza & Loza LLP, who answered this question at the 25:36 mark:
“What happens when someone violates your trademark. What are the consequences?”
