February 8 meeting: Legal Issues

The February 8th MIPA meeting is a chance to have your legal questions answered by Patty Zurlo, an attorney who specializes in representing creative individuals like writers, artists, and musicians. This is your chance to ask copyright and trademark questions. And whether your brother-in-law can really sue you for mentioning him in your book. We’ll also continue the discussion about piracy and what you can do about it, plus the other side of crowdfunding and donating books—taxes.

Attorney Patty Zurlo is a professional classical musician and fiber artist as well as an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law teaching Art and Cultural Heritage Law. Learn more about her at
