How not to get ripped off in design

Published 09.11.06 at 18:00

Being copied and someone else ripping off your creative ideas is a major concern once you start to sell, publicise and promote your creative work. You need to protect your ideas and make sure you know what to do if someone does actually copy what is rightfully yours.

This free event took place at the London College of Fashion in November 2006.

Speakers include New Zealand-born jewellery designer Lily Gardner and Harry Karaolou, IP lawyer at Bevan Brittan.

The 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.
