Legal issues can cause a headache – none more so than intellectual property (IP). Everything from your brand name to your clothing designs, website design, social media accounts, supplier lists and photographs are protected by one or more intellectual property rights. You might not own all of these rights and whilst you might not have any problems in the UK if you sell to other territories you may find that you fall the wrong side of the law.

At 10am on 26 February 2019, Rosie Burbidge, will host an exclusive masterclass ‘Getting to Grips with Intellectual Property’ at FashionCapital / FTA HQ in North London.

Rosie is an Intellectual Property Partner at Gunnercooke LLP and the author of European Fashion Law: A Practical Guide from Startup to Global Success.

Rosie will guide masterclass attendees through the key intellectual property issues which the fashion industry faces on a day to day basis. She will also give her top tips on how to save costs and when you need to spend some money in order to invest in the future of your business.

Rosie will cover lots of topics including:

  1. It’s more than just copyright: understanding the different types of IP right and how to secure them for low/no cost?
  2. Working with photographers and other freelancers: do you own your IP?
  3. What to do if someone copies you?
  4. What if you’re accused of infringing someone’s rights?
  5. Managing IP as an asset to enable long term business success including obtaining funding and business sale
  6. The IP implications of working with distributors, agents, licensees and franchises.
