Welcome to Own-It: Your Free Intellectual Property Resource Centre

Own It is a new service which offers free intellectual property advice for London’s creative people.

Within your business or your practice, you've probably created a wealth of in-house ideas, designs, music, writing, images – in short, ‘intellectual property' - which can make you extra money, as long as you give it the proper legal protection. Own It will show you how.

Own It provides free legal contract templates available for download, free legal advice and free seminars to enable creative people to make the most of their ideas.

Own It is a partnership between Creative London and London College of Communication, University of The Arts London.
