Update: David Bausola of Imagination (www.imagination.com) and Rob Myers - the conceptual engineers behind the commercial media production model that uses Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike as in Ford of Europe's Where are the Joneses? - will both be joining Tom and John (see below) for our panel Q&A at the Monday seminar
Over the last few months here at ORG Towers, we've been working hard on the Creative Business in the Digital Era research project, examining the way in which businesses are using open intellectual property (IP) as a central pillar of their business model.
The project culminates in three free seminars in central London during March - a full day on 17th March, and two evening seminars on 18th/19th (with roughly the same content in each) - where we'll talk about what we've discovered about open IP businesses, and talk to people who are actually giving stuff away whilst also making money from it. We've managed to recruit three fabulous guest speakers:
Monday 17 March
- Tom Reynolds, blogger, ambulance technician and author of Blood, Sweat and Tea, published under Creative Commons licence and in paper by The Friday Project.
- John Buckman, entrepreneur, musician and founder of CC music label Magnatune.
Tuesday 18 March (evening)
- Tom Reynolds graces our presence again.
Wednesday 19 March (evening)
- David Bausola, the creative mind behind interactive online comedy Where are the Joneses?
The seminar is aimed at people within the creative industry - e.g. music, publishing, film, TV, radio, visual arts, photography - and from any size of company, whether they are freelances or a C-level exec. The course materials are all being prepped out in the open, under CC licence.
As mentioned, the seminar is free to attend - if you are interested, all you need to do is to fill in our application form.
