Time: 5:00 to 7pm
Cockpit Arts Deptford
18 – 22 Creekside
If you’ve started to sell, publicise and promote your creative work, then protecting your ideas and making sure you don’t get ripped off should form an inherent part of your professional strategy.
This Own It event will offer a basic guide to the law, covering the steps any creative professional should take in order to stop somebody else stealing or otherwise using your work without your permission (including copyright, patenting, trade marks, licensing and design rights.) There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
