About The Class

protect your work.

Copyright, trademark, and intellectual property are all terms that creative professionals throw around, but being aware of them isn’t the same as understanding how they apply to you and your work. And while working with a lawyer can be helpful, it can also be costly and time-consuming – the best solution for most creatives is to become your own informed advocate.

In Protect and Profit From Your Intellectual Property, Rachel Rodgers will explain how intellectual property works, how to quickly and easily protect your creations, and a host of ways to make more money from what you’ve already created. 

You’ll learn about:

  • Conducting an IP audit
  • Licensing your work
  • Protecting your copyright and trademarks

Whether you’re a photographer, filmmaker, designer, or entrepreneur, this class will give you the skills and confidence to defend and profit from your unique creations.

    Ms Rogers' class is rich in information and her approach is friendly and accessible. If you have been avoiding learning about intellectual property because it seems too daunting, this is the class for you. Every creative professional should know the extent and worth of their IP. According to Rachel Rogers, you may be utilizing as little as five percent of your worth. Five percent? Really? You can't afford to miss this class.

    If IP is a goldmine, Rachel is the excavator helping you uncover the gold. The course material was easy to understand and clear to apply. I really appreciate Rachel giving so much valuable information without being salesy and doing the "dangle the carrot" thing. Thank you Rachel for sharing your gifts.
