The Business of Being Creative
January 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm AEST
If you own a business you own Intellectual Property, especially copyright, even if you are not a creative business.
In this valuable ‘The Business of Being Creative’ session, held at Redlands Sporting Club this Saturday, you will learn how to identify the copyright you own, how to protect it and how to capitalise and make money from it. Hosted by Andrea Smith of Applause Genie, a copyright expert, she has been educating businesses on copyright for over twenty years. Andrea is currently writing a book on copyright for small businesses and will share valuable tips on copyright ownership; she says “Most small businesses may not be aware of the copyright they own, thinking that it is exclusive to those in the arts. In this session I’ll talk about what you may own, staff and freelancer ownership, and outline areas to consider in both ownership and infringement”.
Joining Andrea on this session will be Andrew Tuttle, Manager – National Engagement from collecting society APRA AMCOS. Andrew will cover music copyright for songwriters and the procedures for staying legal for businesses and events. This important session will set you up to make sure you are aware of and protect your valuable copyright and make sure you are respecting the copyright of others.
