Own-it | Intellectual Property Know-How for Creative Businesses


Copyright, custom and collaboration: IP know-how for visual creators

Published 02.06.10 at 14:02

Knowing about intellectual property (IP) rights can give you a real advantage when negotiating deals with your commissioners. It can make you money beyond the sale of an artwork and ensures that you can still earn from your work even after you have published it in a magazine or book. And it can help you to avoid pitfalls when collaborating with others or using work that is not yours. This seminar will cover everything there is to know about copyright and how visual creators such as photographers, illustrators and fine artists can use IP to sustain their business and grow their reputation.

In May, Own-it held an event in Brighton that focused on collaboration and how to make money beyond licensing a work for publication. It looked at joint authorship when working as a collective and explained artists' resale rights. The speakers were Christian Zimmerman, Legal and Business Affairs Manager at the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) and Daniel Rudd, Artist's Resale Rights Manager at DACS. A copy of their presentations from the event can be downloaded below.
