Listen to the Episode

Thoughts from Angie:

  • I saw others experience the same issues that I already experienced. 

  • Creatives are impacted by not protecting their creative works. 

  • You want to protect the “things” you create. 

  • You can protect a pattern, but you cannot protect the “useful” thing. 

  • The law has not caught up with certain “protections”. 

  • A photograph can be protected by a copyright. 

  • A tradedress protects the look and feel of a product or a service. 

  • The internet is a tool and a weapon at the same time. 

  • You are one click away from finding out that someone is copying you. 

  • There are different contracts to be aware of and what they are used for.  

  • Be proactive and protecting rather than reactive and having to defend.
