"Happy Together" - Sharing Your Creativity And Making New Friends

Collaborating? Sharing creative ideas? Want to use someone else’s? Think you’d like other people to access yours? Or do you just like hanging out with other creatives? This Own It event will bring to life the new world of sharing intellectual property. It will cover how to make money when you share your intellectual property, including the open rights, creative ideas bank and creative commons initiatives.

This Own It event at Turnmills is for creative types who are collaborating, sharing creative ideas or want to use someone else’s. The event will bring to life the new “share it” section of the Own It website and the new world of sharing intellectual property. It will cover how to make money when you share your intellectual property, including the open rights, creative ideas bank and creative commons initiatives.

This is also the launch of Own It’s networking night. The event runs from 6-8pm, but from 8pm onwards, attendees are invited to stay on for free drinks and creating relationships.

Speakers include Hugh Mason, Partner, Pembridge Partners LLP, a business accelerator for creative industries, who will talk about The Creative Ideas Bank, an IP bank where members belong to a partnership that they can assign and license intellectual property rights from.

Peter Crawshaw from Lovereading Ltd will also discuss how he has a specific agreement with publishers, authors and illustrators to achieve a free distribution of their intellectual property whereby readers can download approximately 10 - 15 pages of the featured books

Lee Gage, IP solicitor at Harbottle and Lewis LLP, will talk about collaboration from a legal point of view, what needs to be in place on shared projects, how does Creative Commons work, the “Open” movement and what happens about the IP when a shared business is sold or when the partnership is no longer a happy one.

Finally, Christian Ahlert of Open Business will discuss innovative business modes, ideas and tools to sharing IP.

This event costs £15.00. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Bookings are registered on receipt of the event fee by cheque (telephone, email or fax bookings cannot be accepted). Cheques should be made payable to University of the Arts London.
