About the project

”Creative Law Studios. Intellectual Property Law for creative industries” is carried out by the Institute of Law, Technology and Innovation with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.

Mission of the Project is to change the mental prejudice of creative and cultural operators that "the artist should be hungry", achieve respect for the results of creative activity, dispose of the legal nihilism, plagiarism and piracy in the professional community.

Lawyers should help to pursue the freedom of creativity, not to limit it. We strive to open the eyes of creators to certain things, to teach them how to perceive violations of rights differently, without destroying their outlook.

For whom
For whom
  • freelance creators (artists, photographers, cameramen, architects, designers, copywriters) who will be able to use and evaluate the results of their creativity, their intellectual product more effectively;
  • cultural operators (art managers, curators, dealers, mediators) and cultural institutions that will enhance their competencies and will be able to build relationships in the creative industries market in a conscious and civil way;
  • creative associations and groups that will be able to represent the interests of a particular group of artists and the creative community more effectively and professionally;
  • students of specialized educational institutions who will receive basic knowledge in the field of intellectual property, which will affect their mental attitude to plagiarism in art. Eventually, they will be able to separate cases of plagiarism and legitimate derivation.

Stealing of other people's works is a real pain for me, which is why we decided to raise the issue of intellectual property protection among creatives. Thanks to the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation it became possible!
