If you're an industrial, furniture or product designer, you might be worried that talking to manufacturers, buyers and clients may result in you giving away your valuable ideas for free. This practical workshop will explain how to protect your work, covering key issues such as confidentiality agreements, licensing, assigning, royalties, ownership and exclusivity. It will also give a clear guide to contracts between maker and client/manufacturer. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
