How to make money from ideas: IP rights for creative people

Published 30.09.08 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 professional. 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.

Speakers were Naazneen Schmittzehe, Hamlins LLP, and Jeminee Solanki, fashion designer. The event took place at Innovation Central, Central Saint Martins, London, in September 2008.

The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
