Protecting Fictional Characters
Audio recording of my new CLE on Protecting Fictional Characters, presented at the Orange County Bar Association, on June 26, 2017. Here is the program description: Owners and creators of fictional characters run the gambit in protecting their works of art from outright infringers to fan films. This seminar will address case studies in protecting fictional characters, from the Vampira/Elvira litigation, to Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica, and the fan film Star Trek Axanar. The material will cover what works of art are protected, what are not, and what is allowable for fan films.
