Black & White of the Creatives
The success of creative and artistic right-brained population is often restricted by the left brained legal system that exists in our country. Hence, I would like to share insights into legal protections are available for the different types of creative people, including artists, choreographers, musicians, cinematographers, writers, poets, designers, architects, visual artists and the like. I would also like to throw some light on the boundaries within which such creatives may need to operate so that they do not infringe upon rights of their fellow mates.
(1) Copyright laws, design laws, patent laws and different components of creative work which can be protected.
(2) Manner and means of licensing, assigning, creating derivative works and/ or earning roalities on creative work.
