You’ve Been Sued; Now What? What to Do When They’ve Come For You

Sometimes, even when you’ve done everything right, you still find yourself on the receiving end of a lawsuit. This presentation covers how to respond to a cease and desist letter, how to respond to a lawsuit, and what the most common defenses are in five areas of law – copyright, trademark, right of privacy and publicity, defamation, and contracts. The presentation will also include an overview of recent cases that will have an impact on publishers and authors.
