What legal considerations should I make as a creative business?


Running a creative business means you need to consider several legal matters. For instance, intellectual property is likely to be the heart of your business activities. As such, it's important to take measures to protect your IP. You can do this by registering a trade mark, or even having copyright disclaimers on your website or attached to your content.

However, you need to make sure you register your trade mark in the correct class or category. There are 45 trade mark classes in Australia, so it's wise to seek legal assistance to ensure you're following the correct process.

In addition, IP can involve licensing your work to other parties for a profit. These kinds of arrangements require legally binding contracts so you can limit your liability and ensure that you retain legal ownership over your creative works.

In the world of content and creative entertainment, there is also the important legal matter of privacy. Your business needs to comply with the Privacy Act 1988 or the Australian Privacy Principles, which often involves having a well-drafted Privacy Policy. Get in touch with our team to learn more about your legal needs.
