These are the slides for a seminar on creative output that I gave on 30 Oct 2013.
"Creative output" for these purposes means works of art and literature and design. Works of art and literature connote visual and literary arts and performing arts. Investment in visual and literary arts are protected by copyright and performing arts by rights in performances.
Design means the design of products that are likely to be reproduced though not necessarily in a large scale, Design can be functional or ornamental. Functional designs are protected by unregistered design right. Ornamental designs that are new and have individual character can be protected by registration as registered designs or as registered Community designs. There is also 3 year protection throughout the EU against copying for designs that could be registered as registered or registered Community designs.
This presentation considers copyright: subsistence, qualification, title, duration, infringement, economic and moral rights. It also touches on rights in performances, design rights, registered designs and registered and unregistered Community designs.
