Community Cultural Development (Singapore) Presents
Intellectual Property & The Vulnerable Artist

A Legal Clinic on Intellectual Property Rights for Artists working with Communities

Arts projects with communities typically involve a range of stakeholders who have access to an artist’s ideas and written proposals. In a sector that has become more competitive with increased funding, the ideas and written materials put forward by artists and arts groups can be vulnerable to plagarism and theft.

To address this issue, CCD (Singapore) is grateful to have Mr. Samuel Seow from Samuel Seow Law Coporation to talk about IP rights for artists who work with communities. He will present these particular areas:

1) What constitutes intellectual property?
2) How can we protect our work through copyright?
3) What can we do if we suspect a breach of copyright?
The session will conclude with a Q and A.
