We were very fortunate to engage Gretchen McCord to help us on many fronts. To find a lawyer with an understanding of how librarians approach the importance of intellectual property and intellectual freedom in a very complex and fluid environment is very rare.
Gretchen has helped us address several legal issues with our Woodneath Story Center program, which deals with written, oral, and digital storytelling. She has assisted us with everything from publishing agreements and printing agreements, to rights assignments, and even non-disclosure agreements for titles we intend to publish. Gretchen also helped us defend and protect our trademark and with issues concerning the public performance of music and movies.
In all these areas, Gretchen makes our work very easy. She routinely responds to our requests quickly, and her work is always very professionally done. I strongly recommend her for assistance in her areas of expertise.
