Featured Presentation: Copyright: What Writers Need to Know

Speaker: R. Scott Kimsey

Attention writers: do you know¬† your rights when it comes to copyright of your work? Join us for this important discussion about copyright law, tailored for writers and authors. This presentation will address the writing and publishing process, and how you can protect your “intellectual property” from creation, to publication, to licensing your work to third parties. We expect to have a lively Q&A session, so bring your questions!

Our speaker is R. Scott Kimsey, a registered patent attorney in Bakersfield with a specialty in intellectual property matters. He has 19 years of experience working with large corporations, non-profit organizations, individual artists, authors, and inventors. Scott is an author himself, and is currently a member of the Writers of Kern, a branch of the California Writers Club. We are very honored to have him speak at our branch’s monthly meeting, and we are also excited to learn from a fellow CWC member.
