Intellectual Property matters
Roundtable | YCN — For our members

In the latest in a series of sessions, legal expert William Miles will be answering questions, and talking over a series of case studies, relating to intellectual property and the ownership of ideas.

Copyright, confidentiality, database rights, design rights, moral rights, image rights, intellectual property, patents, trademarks...... 

For creative businesses, and creative professionals, the language and landscape of legal issues can be baffling. But understanding the value of our creativity, and who owns what, has never been more important in our digitally driven times.

Knowing what rights exist in the work you're buying or selling (either for yourself or on behalf of clients) will enable you to confidently and positively protect and promote it, and to defend any inappropriate applications by others.

At this, the latest in a series of roundtable sessions hosted at YCN, legal expert William Miles from specialist solicitors Briffa will sit among a group of members — answering questions in relation to past and current challenges, and talking over a series of case studies, relating to the protection of Intellectual Property and the 'ownership' of ideas. 

What the session will cover: 

As well as providing a thorough explanation of Intellectual Property ("IP") law, and its component parts, the session will go through how you can protect, enforce and monetise:

— Copyright

— Trade marks

— Designs

— Patents

— Confidential Information

As well as sharing real-world examples and case studies, Will can also answer any specific IP-related questions from the group. 

Who is this for?

These sessions are intended to equip anyone working in the business of creativity, whether that's an illustrator creating images or a client buying them, with practical and professional guidance on the many challenges that come along the way.
