Whether you are an independent freelancer or a small business owner working in a creative industry, or just a person willing to understand what various Intellectual Property (IP) rights are and how to protect them, then this course is for you.

 

Whenever a graphic designer creates a logo or advertising material, an author writes a song or someone creates a new invention at home, that person has created an IP object.

 

Therefore, after an IP object has been created relevant rights must be protected so that others do not take advantage of your work,

 

Thus, having a basic knowledge of IP rights is crucial for anyone working in a creative industry.
