A nonprofit relies on its founder for its initial ideation, organization and drive. Many founders also create intellectual property that is used by the nonprofit, before and after the organization is created. During this webcast, our speakers will review some legal considerations and best practices for nonprofits around using content created by its founder including:
• What types of IP might be relevant?
• Is there a difference if a founder is a paid employee or unpaid volunteer?
• Written and implied license rights for use of the founder’s materials.
• Special considerations for internet content.
• If a nonprofit pays its founder to use their IP, what are the tax-exempt considerations?
Speakers: Ron Coleman, Partner at Parker Hudson & Robyn Miller, PBPA Senior Corporate/ Tax Counsel
