The IP field is a complex one. The purpose of this booklet is to give general information only. More information will be available on the forthcoming Cultural Oservatory website (contact for details). As a second phase of the project we hope to develop specific guidance for authors, artists, musicians and other people working in the cultural industries.

If you have a specific problem we advise you to contact organisations in your sector, the goverment agency responsible for administering IP rights (CIPRO) or a lawyer specialising in a relevant area of intellectual property (contact SAIIPL to find one). See the end of this booklet for the relevant contact details.
