    Artwork on buildings can be protected under a number of intellectual property regimes, including copyright or trade dress. Recently, graffiti artists have successfully sued property owners for millions of dollars the removal of graffiti in violation of a relatively new form of IP in the United States: "Artist Rights.” Most famously, a group of graffiti artists recently obtained damages of $6.7 million in a lawsuit under the Visual Artist Rights Act for the whitewashing of their graffiti by property owners at “5Pointz” in New York. The webinar will examine the various types of protection afforded artwork on buildings; the 5Pointz case and other recent cases involving artist rights; and precautions all property owners should take before allowing artwork to be created or destroyed on their buildings.

    Category: Co-Sponsored Programs, Taxation, Trusts & Estates Trusts and estates are subject to increased tax rates as high as 40.8% on ordinary income as soon as net income exceeds only $12,750 ( in 2019) and 23.8% on qualified dividends and long term capital gains as soon as net income exceeds $12,950 (in 2019). To help practitioners minimize the impact of higher tax rates and avoid many of the traps for the unwary, this program will translate different definitions of income, including fiduciary accounting income, distributable net income and trust taxable income in a clear and concise manner. In addition, this presentation will review the impact of recent tax reform, case law, IRS guidance, and Treasury regulations on the taxation of trusts and estates
