2019 Kick-Off // Three Questions
Arts Counsel Texas is proud to launch the 2019 season of Lunch + Learn programs! On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, we will focus on a new issue that bridges the chasms between art, law, and business.
To kick-off this year, we are going to have a program that acts as a summary of the events to follow, PLUS we will be answering the three most popular questions that Tom and Michael get from artists throughout the year. While we are keeping the exact questions a surprise, the topics will include copyright, LLC’s, and artist/gallery relationships.
Each of these topics will be covered in-depth later in the year, but this will be a chance to get some of your questions answered and have a party on us! Look forward to seeing you there!
Join Maddrey PLLC at the Small Business Expo in Dallas on Wednesday, February 6!
The Maddrey PLLC team will be assisting small business owners and answering questions while founder and managing partner, Thomas Maddrey, hosts a workshop on copyrights and trademarks, “Copyrights and Trademarks – Why Your Most Important Assets Are Intangible”.
Most people, and maybe artists especially, think contracts are awful and want to avoid them at all costs. But as we will explain, this is a mistake based on a misunderstanding. Contracts are everywhere and they’re unavoidable. Indeed, virtually every agreement you make with someone is a contract, even if it’s not in writing. Sometimes it’s okay if the agreement is simply a handshake, but not always. In this presentation, we will talk about when and why certain agreements should be written and explain that they don’t have to be written in gobbledy-gook legalese.
