About this episode

Creating art means creating copyright. Your copyright is one of the most important things you as a creator can own and understand.

In this session, you’ll learn how to make the most of the work you create and ways to monetise your work outside of gigs, events and exhibitions. Let us walk you through owning and using your copyright, knowing your moral rights as well as creating copyright with other people.

This session uses practical examples, case studies from artists’ experiences and hypothetical scenarios to help make copyright accessible and, dare we say, fun for creatives.
