The Legal Aspect: Protecting your Creativity
Tuesday 1st September 2020, 1pm-2:30pm
This is open to everyone on zoom:
As every business regardless of size or scale owns or uses some form of IP, protection of some of your most valuable assets is essential in the creative industries. Given the significant impact of the current pandemic on our sector, innovation continues to be a key factor in responding to the challenges posed by Covid-19. As businesses diversify at pace - surfacing new products and services to broaden their offering and using technology in more innovative ways than ever - a wider understanding of IP sits front and centre as we try to navigate this uncertain time. Although this area can often seem daunting, this session will cut through the myriad of key issues relevant to our sector and offer an understandable overview on protecting everything that makes your business unique.

Following a long career in the sector, he retrained as a Solicitor with a specialist knowledge of intellectual property protection and exploitation, data protection and media & entertainment law.
