As a creator, the greatest wish after toiling 24/7 is none other than sharing the work with as many people who appreciate the work as possible. Publishing on-line or printing a publication by yourself are much easier than before, or just go to a matching publishing house and ask them to do it for you! The numerous modes of cooperation between artists and the publishing channels are numerous, ranging from the expected to those simply beyond imagination! As such, knowing how to protect your intellectual property rights are certainly let you get ahead when branching off to spin-offs! Furthermore, where does one draws the fine line between referencing, studying, paying tribute and lastly plagiarising?

For all those who are in the fields of comics, illustration, animation, publishing and production, intellectual property laws are closely related to you! How to achieve the most flexibility between the licensing and licensed parties while striking the right balance? How to differentiate referencing, studying, paying tribute and plagiarising from each other? Know better and get prepared to bring your works to a brave new world to shine at any moment!

Apart from explaining the basics of Hong Kong’s intellectual property laws, the invited speakers in the field will also share from their experience some tips on overseas publication and spin-offs. Get prepared and suited up for the great opportunity that presents itself at any time now! Come and sign up for Intellectually Yours!
