Protecting the Fringe of Pop Culture: IP’s Role in Championing Outsiders and the Emerging Arts (with Éamon Chawke, Partner, Briffa law firm, UK & Ireland)

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO THIS PODCAST. WE VALUE OUR AUDIENCE. TO HELP US ENRICH YOUR EXPERIENCE, PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING SHORT SURVEY: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BrandandNewIntellectual property (IP) law is engineered to foster innovation and creativity. In some countries, the way IP applies to traditional forms of creativity such as music, painting, design, or even perfumes is understood and accepted. But, at least in principle, it may be less obvious when it comes to emerging popular forms of art, such as street and body art. How does IP apply to street and body arts? Who owns what? What are the competing rights at stake—those of the owner of the building on which a graffiti is painted or the person bearing the tattoo? Beyond copyright, can trademark registration provide artists with additional protection? How does all of this play out on social media, the emerging arts’ favorite exhibition forum nowadays. Éamon Chawke, a Partner with Briffa Solicitors, a boutique law firm in the United Kingdom, provides insight. Specializing in the protection, management, exploitation, and enforcement of IP, he has a broad spectrum of clients that include authors, agents, and publishers, as well as clothing, furniture, and graphic designers. Every two weeks, on Tuesday, Brand & New gives the floor to inspiring individuals, with a 360-degree vision, to help brand owners, intellectual property lawyers, and marketing and finance professionals (and beyond!) stay curious and agile in an ever-evolving business environment. Brand & New is a production of the International Trademark AssociationHosted by Audrey Dauvet - Contribution of M.
