How not to get ripped off: Enforcing and protecting your IP

Published 12.08.08 at 19:30

This podcast 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.)

The speaker was Sally Shorthose, Bird & Bird, and the event took place at the Rootstein Hopkins Space at the London College of Fashion in August 2008.

The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
