Picture this: you're an entrepreneur or start-up business with a great idea, product, or service. You have worked hard on developing what you are passionate about and expecting success with your business growth. In a split second, your success and growth are put to a halt and all you have worked for is exploited. Are you protected?
York University's Intellectual Property Law & Technology Program – IP Innovation Clinic, in partnership with Sandbox Centre, invites you to join a 5-Part Series: The IP Lunch Club! Every Wednesday during the month of March IP Osgoode & SBX will be offering free virtual info sessions across a wide range of topics that will aid you in making sure your biz, idea, or product is properly protected. Thank you to our presenting sponsor of this series: Barriston Law. Barriston will be joining to offer some local insights on how they are supporting the business community with IP protection and commercialization.
Tattoo artists, graphic designers, art businesses, graffiti art, and the creative industry at large are continuously facing unique challenges when it comes to their legal rights and protecting their work. Does this sound like something you can relate to?
In Part 4 of 5 of the IP Lunch Club Series, join the team at IP Osgoode for an overview of relevant Canadian laws associated with protections afforded to artists, writers, and designers under The Copyright Act. It may seem like a silly question, but understanding and discussing "what is art?" will be helpful when it comes to protecting your creative ideas. The team will highlight accessibility issues arising from artists' lack of general awareness of their legal rights, and discuss digital fashion as an emerging creative industry, including how digital fashion shifts consumption models.
Protecting the ideas and creations of artists, inventors, and business owners allows businesses to grow, and encourages innovation. Register now!
When: Wednesday March 24, 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:15pm
Where: Virtual! Free session
Who should join? New business owners, entrepreneurs, start-ups, innovators, and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge on protecting innovation and intellectual property!
