Guess what?!

I was just checking my business emails and I have an email regarding my Degree Show! Some body is interested in buying some of my pieces!

I am so excited!

The pieces they are interested in are these:

They are a company specialising in cleaning products!

The thing is, I am not sure how much to sell them for! If any of you have any advice for me about this, I would really appreciate it! Also, I would like to retain copywrite of them! Advice, please, if any of you know anything about this!

I really can't belive it - I am super happy!

Thank you, Sam and Susan!

I was thinking about asking my Tutors, but I am not sure if they will be in, as we have finished our degrees now! I might try to call them and see if they can give me any advice!

Thank you, guys!

I have not been able to get hold of my tutors yet, so I am going to chat to a couple of my friends and see what they say! I was thinking along the lines of £50 per piece?! Maybe?!

I'll let you all know how it goes though!

Fantastic news Sarah .

Check with your tutors - they should be able to help you. Try calling them first - if they are not in - send them an email. I know most of the tutors at my place (myself included) read and answer our emails at home.

With regard to copyright - as long as the copyright belongs to you and not the University (check with your tutors what the position regarding copyright is) just because you sell the work does not mean you sell the copyright. Any transfer of copyright has to be in writing and signed by you or by somebody on your behalf. It's a bit like buying the latest novel by a leading author, just because you buy the book doesn't mean you get copyright in the novel. You need to check out the position and get the contract looked at by somebody at the Uni who can help you or a practising Solicitor.

You might like to talk to your tutors regarding the kind of contracts you could enter into, because there are ways that you can limit what they do with the work for example if that is a worry to you. Or you might wish to talk about your moral rights.

There are some quite straightforward books on Intellectual Property that I could recommend to you if you are interested in seeing how you are protected. Alternatively visit the government website at www.patent.gov.uk - it is written for non lawyers as well as legal professionals.

What an exciting time this is for you

Thank you, Beth!

Yes, it certainly is an exciting time for me! I am so pleased with the way everything is going!

Thank you for the information, I will take a look at it and I would definitely like to look into some books, as it might come in handy for the future (as well as for now!)

It is definitely a lot more complicated than I though! But I am positive that I am going to thoroughly enjoy the learning curves on the way!

Rigel, thank you too!
