When you speak to Steven, you’ll get clear explanations to help you quickly understand what needs to be done and why.

Your knowledge and your enthusiasm for the subject of copyrights, trademarks and fair use was so apparent – and so appreciated! Several of the students commented the next day that they were afraid it would be dull and boring but instead they found the subject interesting even though sometimes difficult. The handout you provided was also a plus; it is thorough and will be a good resource for them as they (hopefully) take their course notebook for support and guidance on the job next year. … I'll always appreciate your willingness to support my students--above and beyond what I would ever dream of asking you to do.
Professor of Graphic Design, SUNY Fredonia.

Steven will help you protect your rights and intellectual property. Protecting his own writing, photography, painting and drawing has given Steven valuable experience that makes him uniquely qualified to work with artists, musicians and creators of other original works.

He has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, has written over 70 articles and published a book, has appeared on radio and TV, and has presented over 50 lectures designed for audiences from middle-schoolers to judges.

The students in both classes were easily drawn in by Steve’s engaging lecture style. The information he imparted was extremely valuable to all of us and his handout was extensive and displayed an inordinate amount of painstaking effort to compile.
