Protection of intellectual rights

Protection of intellectual rights
As part of our programme at Centre for Creativity called Creative Accelerator and Associated Programme of 26th Biennial of Design, run by the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana, we are organising a workshop, series of lectures and individual support desk on the topic of intellectual property (IP) rights for the creative and cultural sector in Slovenia. Aimed at creatives, who are wondering how they can protect their creative works, how does the process work when it comes to shared authorship, how to protect IP rights in a licence agreement, what kind of IP protection routes exist for creative practices, how to make most of the IP rights and how the Slovenian government helps with that process.

IP Thinkshop is a workshop run by the EU co-funded project Creative FLIP, followed by a series of lectures, and at the same time there will be an open desk (IP Clinic) for individual consultation on IP rights, which will also run on the next day in the Ajdovščina Underpass.

Registration for the IP Thinkshop is necessary, as the places are limited, but no registration is required for lectures and IP Clinic as they are based on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that the IP Thinkshop, IP Clinic and the lecture by Anna Maria Stein will be held in English.

☞ IP Clinic is an individual support desk for participants where they can ask their specific IP-related questions. Depending on the question, we can either provide them on-site support (i.e. answer their questions, provide useful tools, etc.) or forward them to the relevant bodies.
