We All Copy Stuff. But How Close Is Too Close?

Here's the problem: You create great digital content (maybe an app, or video) that goes viral. Then someone rips it off.
On the flip side, maybe someone else created great digital content that you want to "borrow". (You're not "borrowing" all of it, of course. Just enough to leverage the popularity of the original content.)
But where does the law draw the line? How close can you get to existing content before you cross the line into IP infringement? How much can you "borrow", and how much can be "borrowed" from you, before lawyers get involved?
In this highly interactive, entertaining and educational session, we'll discuss real legal cases involving video games, superheroes and digital content of all sorts--even online comic books!--to illustrate where the law draws the line between creativity and IP infringement.
The session will be led by Brad Gross, general counsel to the Society of Digital Agencies and attorney for dozens of production companies worldwide.
