Why Just Wanna Quilt's Quilt Law?  We've been looking into quilting for the last two years as part of the Copyright Research Lab @ Tulane Law School.  Through our research, we've designed two tiers that provide key elements related to intellectual property within a social media and brick-and-mortar world.  

What we think is important:

  1. Do your homework.  Intellectual property is the law that protects all of the creative things you do.  Understand it.  Know it.  Be prepared.

  2. Have a plan.  We have seen over and over that weird things come up.  If you already have a plan, and have done the work, you are in in a better position when things like copyright infringement come up.  

  3. Create a Team.  We're here to help you build a team, and to have resources when you need others.  No scrambling.  No panic.  And know upfront the costs. 

  4. DIY.  We are creators.  We want to do it ourselves.  So, we've designed something that allows you to do that.  And when you need help, we have created a list of experts who list their fees (transparency) to help you with your legal and other expert needs.
