What defines ownership of intellectual property is one of the most hotly debated topics in the creative industries. And why wouldn’t it be. Afterall, expertise, ideas and creativity underpin an individual’s value, as much as they define an agency or even the client.
In Concept to Copyright, IN:WA’s esteemed panel will delve into the often tricky world of IP and discuss both personal and commercial compliance on Thursday 26 October.
Beyond that, they’ll explore opportunities for developing and commercialising your IP; recent updates in government policy; and how tax breaks for R&D are helping drive tomorrow’s innovation.
Panel discussion will be facilitated by IN:WA Deputy Chair, Amy Sutton, Founder & CEO Anthologie.
