Do not copy this©®™

Ruth Nicholls talking about IP in the creative industry:

  • Your work is automatically protected by copyright the moment you ‘create it’ (has to be in some sort of ‘physical’ form)
  • Copyright lasts your lifetime plus 70 years

Copyright: How to Protect it

  • Record your ideas
  • Include a copyright notice when you share your work
  • Demand confidentiality
  • Record when you create your work, for example:
    • You can e-mail it to yourself so that it is timestamped
    • You can mail it to yourself the old fashioned way dates and sealed
  • Generic copyright notice is: Copyright © [name of artist][date], all rights reserved


  • Elevate desirability
  • Sign of quality
