Ross Brandborg, USA Patent & Trademark Attorney

This is the coolest way to learn about keeping your ideas safe! Okay, so you're like me, and you've got all these awesome ideas swirling around, right? Well, I took this class called 'Don't Steal My Stuff,' and it's basically a crash course in how not to let people rip off your genius. It's not some boring lecture – it actually makes sense 'cause it's all about the stuff WE care about. You know, like your YouTube channel, the beats you make, or even that killer app idea. The course walks you through all these things called 'intellectual property rights' in a way that's super easy to get. By the end, you'll know exactly what you gotta do to make sure your creations stay yours, and no one can just swipe them. Plus, isn't it kinda cool to know the rules so you can play the game better? For any young person or student out there who's into creating and sharing stuff online, this course is like the secret weapon you didn't know you needed.

Jo, homeschooling her children

My 12 year old twin daughters recently completed Don’t Steal My Stuff. This was a fun and interactive course, which made a potentially very boring subject both relevant and interesting. Anna has created some great visuals to walk through the course with and a helpful workbook. I enjoyed the course with them as well! We all particularly loved the short video about Nike which gave us all some insight into intellectual property and how a logo design can develop and become a world famous brand. The sessions are short and easy to follow, both my girls were engaged throughout the course. From a home ed perspective it was great to have a certificate to download at the end which we can add to their portfolio of learning. Thank you.
