All that glitters...

Published 09.05.07 at 19:30

When you show your work on websites, at trade shows or enter into relationships with national or international manufacturers, how can you safeguard against being copied? In addition, what sorts of contracts or agreements do you need to enter into if you form business relationships and manufacturers, distributors, or third parties who might go on to promote or publicise your work?

This podcast covers topics such as working with manufacturers, licensing, business partnerships and collaborations. Speakers include jewellery designer and pioneer Jess James, lawyer Sophie Lachowksy, and freelance designers Jenny Bloy and Alexandra Jefford.

This free event took place at the Gemological Institute of America in May 2007.

This podcast is downloadable in two parts.

Please note that these podcasts discuss the legal position in the UK at the time of publication. They provide general information only and are not to be regarded as legal advice. You must take advice from a specialist lawyer in relation to your specific circumstances. Further, you should seek additional legal advice when dealing with parties based in other parts of the world or works originating from other parts of the world as the legal position may vary.
