Creative collaborations have become common practice in many creative businesses from advertising agencies to theatre productions. Some such collaborations arise from working closely with colleagues while others are more anonymous; for example, on file-sharing sites such as YouTube. From a legal point of view, however, collaborations can be mess. It’s therefore important to avoid future dispute by sorting out ownership of collaborative work from the outset. This seminar will give you an overview of relevant legislation and how you can avoid common pitfalls when working with others – online and offline. We have invited a lawyer, who will define ‘collaborations’ from a legal perspective, a practitioner, who regularly collaborates with others, to talk about best practice and finally a representative from the UK's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) to talk you through the services that the IPO provides and how to register your IP once you have sorted out the all important question of who owns what in the resulting work.
