Publisher: Creative Minds Publishing 2015 Author: Sharon Givoni ISBN: 9780987194794 Format: Hardcover, 560pp,
Not a legal book in the usual sense, renowned Australian intellectual property lawyer Sharon Givoni explains in plain English how the law applies to creative industries. Packed with real-life case studies and user-friendly flowcharts and tables that simplify Australian legal terms, processes and procedures, Owning It demystifies law for creatives. This guide will point you in the right direction regarding: the protection of your designs, trade marks, copyright, reputation, confidential information and other intellectual property (IP); how not to inadvertently infringe someone else's rights; contract basics; licensing; how the law applies online and to certain aspects of social media; and much more.
