Walter Lehmann, managing partner at Lehmann PLC spoke at the 2019 annual conference for the Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums at the end of April. Representing over 500 state history organizations, MALHM is an important resource for local groups seeking professional training and museum assistance. According to MALHM Executive Director Dustin Hoffman this year’s symposium in Red Wing, MN, was the best attended event to date.
Lehmann’s presentation – “Managing Your Museum’s Intellectual Property” – explored the application of intellectual property legal concepts in the museum context. While museums routinely use intellectual property in their day-to-day operations, there are many tricky areas when it comes to managing intellectual property and assessing the legal and business risks.
