Intellectual Property Basics
Online | August 7 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Crash Course in Creative Law, Part 3: Designers, how do you protect your work? What recourse do you have if you get knocked off? In part III of our legal series, creative lawyer Angie Turner breaks down ways to protect your intellectual property through copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and licensing, so you can say goodbye to pesky copycats.
There’s a reason you became a designer, and it probably didn’t have anything to do with legalese. You’re an expert in color, fabric, floor plans and furniture schemes, not intellectual property and trademark protection. If you’re already confused, don’t fret. Angie Avard Turner, an actual lawyer for creative business owners who also owned a seven-figure wholesale company and is married to a designer, is here to be your legal sherpa. In this multi-part series, Angie will take you on a deep dive that runs through the most frequent issues designers face, like when you really ought to seek legal advice and how to choose the right attorney. Clients can be difficult enough, and legal troubles shouldn’t slow you down.
In this course, you will learn:
- Legal definitions and proper applications of copyright, trademarks and patents
- The best ways to legally protect your trade secrets
- How to make sure you’re covered when monetizing your intellectual property
After this class, you will have:
- A better understanding of what items in your business can be protected using intellectual property registration
- A process for creating designs that deter copycats
