How to Make Money From Ideas - A Guide to Intellectual Property Rights for Creative People

The seminar will cover the steps any creative professional should take in order to manage and protect their intellectual property.

The seminar will offer a basic guide to the law, covering the steps any creative professional should take in order to manage your intellectual property and stop somebody else from stealing your work or otherwise using your work without your permission and payment (including copyright, patenting, trade marks, licensing and design rights.)

The event is organised by Own-it in conjunction with DAWN (Dynamic Asian Women Network). We have invited a lawyer who will give an introduction to Intellectual Property Rights and DAWN member Jeminee Solanki, the founder of a creative business, to talk about their experience and practice.
