An Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights for Graphic Designers

Intellectual property rights may not be the most exciting topic, but it is among one of the most important things that a graphic designer needs to know.

Many designers think of intellectual property rights as a means of protecting their own work, but it involves much more and is becoming increasingly complex in the area of web design, Internet sources and 3D printing.

In this HOW Design University course, led by William M. Borchard, a veteran in intellectual property law representing designers directly and through the companies that employ designers, you will learn how to protect your rights, how not to infringe on the rights of others, the related rights of privacy and publicity, trade dress, domain names and other important areas of intellectual property rights.

We live in a litigious world. It is better to be informed and prepared. This course will give you everything you need to know to protect yourself and your work. Understanding intellectual property rights will better equip you to protect your work and respect the work of others.
