Legal Addendum – Get It In Writing
By popular demand, we have added an additional legal segment to this program featuring ASMP’s national legal counsel Tom Maddrey. As a graduate of the prestigious Brooks Institute, Tom started his career as a commercial photographer. Now a practicing attorney specializing in Intellectual Property (here in Dallas), Tom is uniquely qualified to help photographers with legal issues.
During this segment Tom will focus on Contracts – what to watch out for, important clauses to include, how to strike out disagreeable clauses, and more. Watch this space for a bullet list of items to be covered.
