Owning It: A Creative's Guide to Copyright, Contracts and the Law

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is pleased to advise that it will be introducing a new half-day training course on ‘Owning It: A Creative’s Guide to Copyright, Contracts and the Law’ on Wednesday the 5th of October at Viewpoint Centre, St Kilda, Victoria.


Following on from the recent publication ‘Owning It: A Creative’s Guide to Copyright, Contracts and the Law’ by renowned Melbourne intellectual property lawyer Sharon Givoni the half-day training course aims to demystify copyright, contracts and intellectual property law for Australians working in creative industries and running their own businesses.

The half-day training course will be extracting key elements of the 560 page book including:

  • Expert insight and explanation of intellectual property law in ‘plain English’

  • Key legal concepts through enlightening and entertaining real-life case studies.

  • User-friendly flowcharts and tables that simplify legal terms, processes and procedures that creatives regularly encounter.

The half-day training course will aim to point attendees in the right direction regarding:

  • The protection of their designs, trademarks, copyright, reputation, confidential information and other intellectual property (IP);

  • How to reduce the risk of inadvertently infringing someone else’s rights;

  • Contract basics and licensing;

  • How the law applies on-line and to certain aspects of social media;

  • How to better achieve positive legal outcomes and much more.


The Owning It: Copyright, Contracts and the Law Half-Day Training Course will provide attendees with a broader understanding of how Intellectual Property Laws impact on packaging, food, beverage and manufacturing businesses. The focus will be on how to be proactive rather than reactive and preventing problems for arising and also how to protect what YOU OWN.


Food and Packaging designers, technologists and engineers, Brand Managers, PR, Marketing and Graphic Designers, Business Managers and Owners and Quality Control Teams.
