Knowing about intellectual property (IP) rights can give you a real advantage when negotiating deals with your commissioners. It can make you money beyond the sale of an artwork and ensures that you can still earn from your work even after you have published it in a magazine or book. This seminar will cover everything there is to know about copyright and how visual creators such as photographers, illustrators and fine artists can use IP to sustain their business and grow their reputation.

Module 1 (11 May 2010):
Own-it has invited Derek Brazell, who regularly advises Association of Illustrators (AOI) members on contract and ethical issues, to explain copyright and related rights such as moral rights. A practitioner/agent will talk about negotiating the best deal when being commissioned and what questions to ask to avoid disputes or unfair agreements.

Module 2 (18 May 2010):
This module is all about collaboration and how to make money beyond licensing your work for publication. We will look into joint authorship when working as a collective where individual contributions can’t be identified or how to clear rights when your artistic practice involves using found objects or photographs/illustrations. The seminar is organised by Own-it in partnership with Phoenix Brighton and DACS.
