Not a legal book in the usual sense, renowned Australian intellectual property lawyer Sharon Givoni explains in ‘plain English’ how the law applies to creative industries.

Packed with real-life case studies and user-friendly flowcharts and tables that simplify Australian legal terms, processes and procedures, Owning It demystifies law for creatives.

This guide will point you in the right direction regarding: the protection of your designs, trade marks, copyright, reputation, confidential information and other intellectual property (IP); how not to inadvertently infringe someone else’s rights; contract basics; licensing; how the law applies online and to certain aspects of social media; and much more.

Owning It features works from over 140 Australian creatives including Fromage La Rue, The Bell Jar, Nancybird, The Gently Unfurling Sneak, Marnie Hawson, James Morgan, Hours After, Tina van den Broek, Bundy Agency and Hilary Walker; plus Lucas Grogan, Ken Done, Lovestar, Rachel Castle, Tiel Seivl-Keevers, Miranda Skoczek and many more.
