Creative London's "Own It" Free I/P Service
Creative London is offering a free copyright and Intellectual Property service to ensure London's creative community actually profits from its innovations. Called 'Own It', this service will work with 16 major industry organizations to deliver seminars, online and face-to-face advice to ensure creative professionals understand how to exploit and protect their ideas.
According to Creative London's Vision and Plan, one in every five new jobs in the capital city is in the "creative industries." Their Creative Sector 2004 Update from GLA Economics also reports that one in seven of Londonâ€™s jobs is now in the creative sector. Nearly half its creative industry employees are in creative occupations, in contrast to an average of 30 per cent in the rest of the UK.
