Creative Copyright: protecting and licensing your work
Tue 24 May 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Intellectual property issues are important at every stage of an artist's and maker’s working life and can be central to commercial success - but this area can be hard to navigate.
This Makers’ Club event will focus on IP and copyright, helping you understand what is relevant for you. We will cover:
An overview of creative IP and copyright for artists and designers
How to protect the rights that you have as creator of art, designs or handmade objects
Earning from your IP through licensing
Our speakers are:
