Referring to geographical, cross-disciplinary and hybrid borders, I spoke about legal support structures that exist for artists and creatives as they work in a more global and virtually connected world. Providing an introduction to areas of the law including copyright and contract, I wanted to stress the importance of understanding, and better utilizing, the legal framework in which artists and creatives work.
Thanks to Eri for her strong vision and amazing ability to bring the symposium together, and Akihito Nakanishi from the Embassy of the United States in Tokyo for his moderating skills and magnanimous support.
Do you have any questions or comments about or on the intersection between law and the arts? Please feel free to write me at my website, or ask me on twitter using the hashtag #JpUsCreative!
