Back by popular demand, radehe IAL’s Diploma in Intellectual Property & Collections (DipIPC) Course will be run again this year over three full days in London, from the 10th to the 12th of June 2015. The course will cover all areas of IP that affect the art world and is designed for museum professionals and others in the art world or legal world (unlike last year, this can include lawyers).
The course requires no pre-existing knowledge of law and will offer necessary training in hands-on IP management. It will introduce the basics of IP and show how IP rights can relate to other tangible rights. There will be a focus on copyright that will explain its essential elements, the types of works protected, copyright duration, assignment, infringement and the defences available against claims of infringement, including the ‘fair dealing’ exceptions. The course will also cover moral rights, artist resale rights, the law of confidence, digital rights management and freedom of information.
Presenters will include Norman Palmer QC (3 Stone Buildings), Alexander Herman (Institute of Art & Law), Emily Arnold (Farrer & Co LLP) and Jeremy Isaacson (Farrer & Co LLP).
The course is hosted by Queen Mary, University of London and will run at the CCLS at 67-69 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3JB.
