Exploring intellectual property

  • Q&A with top lawyers
  • The Launch of RCA Selected Works 2012/13

Got a burning question about protecting your intellectual property?
Top lawyers will give you the basics and answer questions about:

  • Confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements - when do I need to get it in writing?
  • Copyright - what can be protected and how?
  • Design Rights and Trade Marks - what do they cover?
  • Patents - what's the benefit, how much do they cost?

Bring your IP questions!

Ready to be Selected?
Whether you're a current RCA student or a graduate, if you have an innovative design or invention come along and find out more about the 2012/13 RCA Selected Works Programme.
