Whoa Nelly, rub your belly!

Wow! I got a lot of responses to Intellectual Property Talk With Lawyer Mom, more than I honestly anticipated! I am queuing up questions I've received here in comments, in Etsy convos, in the Etsy forums, and via email to tackle in IP Talk With Lawyer Mom, Round 2: Electric Boogaloo. Unfortunately, that post won't be ready until Wednesday. Today was the end of the work week for most of you, but it was just the beginning for me!

Also, here's the big fat DISCLAIMER:

Questions fielded by Lawyer Mom do NOT constitute official legal counsel. Lawyer Mom's answers are based on her experience with IP work and her interpretation and understanding of the law. Bear in mind that Lawyer Mom typically works outside the realm of (fine) arts (and crafts) and, as such, may drop the ball once in a great while. (But she is always up front about when her footing becomes unsure.)

When you submit a question for Lawyer Mom in any form—Etsy forum thread, Etsy convo, comment here, email to me, etc—you agree not to hold me or Lawyer Mom responsible for any IP-related messes you might inadvertently get yourself into. This is advice and general education here, folks. Consider Lawyer Mom a jumping-off point.

Remember, with intellectual property, it's best to err on the side of caution.

I'll probably have another update up before the next chat with Lawyer Mom, but until then, keep the questions coming!
