Events: Free Intellectual Property Events
Own It organises regular events and workshops covering IP issues for creative people. Tickets for our events are always free. You must register with us in order to make a booking.
Waiting list - Own It operates a waiting list for events, so, if you go to reserve a place and the event is showing as fully booked, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the event in the subject line and ask to be added.
We are happy to supply sign language interpreters for Own It talks, but you must allow us at least 15 working days to organise this, and you must specify the type of interpretation needed (such as British Sign Language.)
We also display relevant events from our partner organisations. You may be charged to attend these events.
