BrisStyle Information Session
Intellectual Property Law for Designers

Intellectual property rights for designers can be very confusing and are often the subject of heated debates in creative circles.

This information session will answer all of your questions regarding Intellectual Property Law for designers. The session will cover aspects relating to legal protection of your designs, using other people's work and what to do if things go wrong. Facilitated by Brisbane Intellectual Property Lawyer, Cameron Gascoyne, this session will be sure to answer all of your questions relating to your intellectual property rights as a designer.

Oh! Would love to hear about the session.

From running Bluecaravan I can see that there are lots of grey areas, and some Designers becoming justifiably upset. There are soooo many ways to skin a cat - it always leaves me perplexed when people outright copy.

Being successful in business requires a solid belief in what you are doing. I think that would be difficult when deep down (deeper down for some) you know that your product isn't you own.

Such a minefield, and one that is so important to explore...

It's interesting that even the biggest designers cant seem to stop the lightning speed in which their designs go from catwalks to Kmart. Just spurs furiously fast fashion... to be even faster.

What is the solution...?
