Attorney Austen Adams Wrote Article About Protecting Nashville's Creative Class

January 6, 2015
Nashville Attorney Austen Adams recently wrote an article titled “Nashville must protect its creative class” for The Tennessean. The article explored the basics of intellectual property and what the creative class – software developers, digital product inventors, and songwriters – should know to protect their works.

“To protect the integrity of our city’s creative industries, Nashville’s creators must first know their rights before they can understand the protections available,” wrote Mr. Adams. “Understanding even the basics of intellectual property law can provide the necessary framework creators need to begin the process of guarding their creations.”

He goes on to discuss copyrights, trademarks, patents, and trade secrets as well as avoiding friendly fire from other creators. Austen Adams is an attorney with the Entertainment Law Practice Group of Dickinson Wright’s Music Row office. He focuses his practice in entertainment and intellectual property law.
