Jiri Svorc's Legal Review

Qualified Solicitor SRA Regulated

“Hands of my property” is an entry-level course on intellectual property guiding an unfamiliar audience through the basic legal IP principles by drawing similarities and making comparisons with the world of physical property we’re all too familiar with. The course will also take you through the most common forms of IP, including copyright works and trademarks. Amongst others, the course refers to a wide range of widely known marks to highlight the significance of the commercial value of IP and its importance in everyday (business) life. As a legal professional, I would like to think that my clients are familiar with these basic principles.

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.

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.
