The complexities of copyright and intellectual law will be explored via the new webinar format, taking into consideration the current climate we're in. Craftspeople, designers and makers will be made aware of the ways they can protect their work and ideas at this Law Week event. There'll be the opportunity to have your questions answered in the session and this event represents the first in a new series of digital support for makers and creatives.
Speaker Rebecca Taube, Deputy General Counsel at RMIT University in Melbourne has a deep respect and admiration for the maker community of Victoria. She has a wealth of experience in intellectual property, marketing and consumer law, privacy and data protection, trade practices and corporate governance and has worked as legal adviser for clients in consumer products and more. This is a not to be missed session that'll provide expert information specific to craft makers. Fighting for your craft can be expensive and exhausting, especially if you're taking on a corporate giant and it pays to be well versed on the subject.
