Who Owns Feldenkrais? (A short video)

Responding to some questions and comments about my new Easy Feldenkrais series, I thought to go ahead and make a short video on the topic of who "owns" Feldenkrais and what you can do with Feldenkrais materials in general and with my materials in specific.

Though many people may tell you otherwise, Feldenkrais is not owned. Certain organizations may lay claim to owning certain copyrighted terms such as Feldenkrais Method®, Awareness Through Movement®, ATM®, Functional Integration® and others...but the movements and the work itself is not owned.

It is important to recognize that copyright law does not protect a concept or idea, it rather protects the expression conveyed, which may be presented in the form of an article, a book etc. So in general, put any Feldenkrais session in your own words and then use those words and ideas however you want. Of course, if you have more specific questions or concerns contact a lawyer. I, Ryan Nagy am not a lawyer...

cheers!

I am a lifetime fan of the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, a blogger and internet marketer living in Mexico. I create and sell kick-ass downloadable Feldenkrais series such as my Easy Feldenkrais Series and Feldenkrais Classics series. You can find my other Feldenkrais products at Feldenkrais MP3. I occasionally organize online conferences related to brief therapy and Ericksonian hypnosis: Psychotherapy Conferences
