When you love your work as an intellectual property rights lawyer and you’re an artist at heart and you have small children, that might all culminate into writing a children’s book to help children understand what intellectual property is from an early age. Or at least that’s what happened for Atlanta-based lawyer, Becki C. Lee.
Teaching Kids about Intellectual Property with Becki C. Lee
A month or so into the COVID shutdown, she had an idea for a children’s book about intellectual property rights. She sat down and wrote out a poem about what patents, trademarks, and copyright are so that young entrepreneurs, creatives, and tinkerers could be educated and empowered to understand their IP rights from an early age.
As soon as I heard about the project, I knew I wanted to be involved. We began to collaborate on me publishing the book, Do You Draw Pictures?, through my publishing imprint Scarlet Oak Press. And Becki enlisted the help of her former bandmate, Walter Jaczkowski, who is a great artist and has illustrated the book.
This interview is about Becki C. Lee’s journey as a professional, the development of her new book Do You Draw Pictures?, and what’s next.
