The copying of designs in the craft and design sector is nothing new. In fact, the habit has become so deeply entrenched that many designers have resigned themselves to this fate- sooner rather than later.
Internationally, we witnessed the kiondo and kikoy being ‘stolen’. What could we have done differently? What CAN we do differently to protect our cultural heritage, our designs, our intellectual property?
One of the most powerful yet least understood option is copyright.
The Kenya Copyright Board [KECOBO] is the government body charged with ensuring that the rightful owner of a design enjoys the accruing benefits.
This June 12, 2-5pm, Craft Afrika and KECOBO team up to bring you an insightful discussion on copyright – what it means, what it applies to, how much it costs, other people’s copyright and how to manage it.
It will be an eye-opening, empowering discussion. You want to be there.
Entrance is free, though registration is a requirement.
