Virtuoso Legal Review

Hallam Whitehead, Trainee Solicitor

Intellectual property is an abstract concept by definition and despite being coined by Mark Getty as being the oil of the 21st century, in practice many people remain in the dark regarding the nature of the core intellectual property rights and how best to protect and ultimately benefit from them. Don’t Steal My Stuff provides an illustrative and engaging introduction to intellectual property, the value of brand strength, and the importance of being proactive in the registration and protection of your rights. Having completed this introduction to the core IP rights, the creators of tomorrow will undoubtedly be better placed to protect and exploit their talents in future with a foundational awareness of the value of their own rights and those of others.

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.

I trained as a Textile Designer but have expanded since I graduated into Surface Pattern and Graphic Design. In my design journey I have protected my work through various types of Intellectual Property protection and this has led me to share my lessons and experiences with others. I have then expanded my knowledge in IP beyond the design field to the wider scope of it's impact.
