The copying of designs in the craft sector is nothing new. In fact, the habit is so deeply entrenched that many designers have resigned themselves to this fate- sooner rather than later. 

As debate rages on about whether copying is necessarily a good or bad thing, what options do designers have in protecting their designs?

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, we engage KECOBO in discussions about what copyright means, what it applies to, how much it costs, other people's copyright and how to manage your copyright.

It will be an eye-opening, empowering dicussion. You want to be there.
