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


I did that! Questions of authorship in art and design

Published 07.06.07 at 19:00

Graphic design, illustration and moving images are sectors of an inherently 'commission' based industry, which opens up a range of sometimes complex as well as unique issues of intellectual property. How can those working in and across communication, art and design maintain, manage and capitalise on their ideas while holding on to their authorship during creative and business processes?

This podcast raises awareness of the main IP issues affecting designers, illustrators and filmmakers entering and working within the creative industries. It will address the common questions of IP, authorship and who retains ownership, with specific attention to creative businesses and projects that have multiple platforms.

Speakers include Jessica Antwi-Boasiako of Soup Session, Nat Hunter and Fred Deakin of Airside and Lee Gage  of Harbottle & Lewis LLP.

This free event was at the Royal College of Art in June 2007.

This podcast is downloadable in two parts.
