Making money from ideas: A guide to IP rights for creative people

Published 14.07.08 at 19:30

Making money from ideas and protecting ideas from being ripped off by other people is a major concern for artists, designer makers, film makers and any other creative professionals. Whenever you talk about your work, exhibit or pitch for commissions you need to protect your ideas and make sure you know what to do if someone does actually copy or makes money from work that is rightfully yours. But apart from protecting your ideas, it is important to know about the value of your ideas and how to exploit your intellectual property.

The speaker was IP expert Georgie Collins, partner at law firm LG Legal, and the event took place at Tate Modern in July 2008.

The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
