or Article Tags


Your Expert Nation is proud to present two notable authors, Elinor Lipman and Boris Kachka, along with Jan Constantine, General Counsel for the Authors Guild, who will answer, “Can I write that while they’re still alive?”

Do you understand the differences between defamation, libel, slander, invasion of privacy and know how to avoid each? What are the concerns, and some suggested solutions, when it’s your own life and family you’re writing about? Or if the subject is dead? What “rules” must a novelist keep in mind? A blogger? A publicist? Can you reprint a photo/story from a newspaper/mag for promo use including their logo? What are the procedures/rules re fair use, copyright, trademarked material?

You can attend either in person or on the web on MARCH 2, 2016. Please indicate your preference when you purchase your tickets here.
