On the 27th of August 2011, Maisha yetu conducted a workshop and invited the kenya copyright board to disseminate in a palatable format to artists matters concerning copyrights and intellectual property.
Education is one of Maisha Yetu’s objectives to enhance capacity amongst artists in the creative industry. Our focus is currently concentrated on empowering established and upcoming performance artists in Kenya, by educating them on their intellectual property rights to give them an economic edge and knowledge on safeguarding their creative work.
- How to protect artistic work from bootlegging (piracy) and even content like beats from getting jacked. (Infringement).
- Oganizations are involved in copyrights and intellectual property.
- Where to receive FREE legal counsel and where to get information online.
As an artist(s) keep up the pace with the info because you may be working hard on stage and in the studio but it is time to work smart, tool up and protect your neck !Here some pics from our gallery of the workshop
