This workshop is designed to help designers* navigate and evaluate the risks and returns of a licensing deal. Participants will increase their understanding and knowledge of licensing along the way and become more confident to negotiate licensing contracts.

The session highlights potential pitfalls and is packed full of essential tips. Although Trade Off covers some of the legalities of licensing, the workshop takes a look at licensing from a design and business perspective and does not offer legal advice.

This 3-hour workshop will look at licensing case studies, definitions and the basics of licensing as well as arming participants with handy tips and plenty of time for a Q&A.
