The Diploma in Intellectual Property and Collections will run again in London, for its fourth consecutive year, for three days from 12 to 14 June 2017. The course will cover all aspects of intellectual property (IP) law affecting collections and collection management, including copyright in artistic works, permitted uses such as fair dealing, copyright duration, international and cross-border considerations, good IP management practice, digitisation, moral rights, the artist’s resale right, trade mark, breach of confidence and the impact of Brexit on the IP landscape.

The teaching will be led by IAL Assistant Director Alexander Herman and Senior Researcher Emily Gould. Guest lecturers will include leading copyright solicitor Simon Stokes (Blake Morgan LLP), who will cover the artist’s resale right.

Examination will be by oral assessment at the end of the course and by written assignment, due several weeks after the completion of the course.

The course is open to legally-trained and non-legally-trained alike. It will be eligible for CPD points.

The course will be hosted at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary, University of London, 67-69 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, near Holborn Station in central London. The cost is £700 + VAT.
