Photographer Douglas Kirkland on the changing face of Hollywood | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it
The 79-year-old, who photographed Marilyn Monroe for Look magazine in 1961, has just released a memoir: A Life in Pictures: The Douglas Kirkland Monograph.
Webgrrl's insight:

People often ask Mr Kirkland how he got to where he is today: an irrelevant question, he said. 'Whatever I did in 1960, half a century ago, I couldn't do that today and enter the field,' he admitted. 

'The field has changed so much, you have to adapt to the times whatever you're doing. That's the reality of life, you have to be a different person today than you had to be then.'

The three kinds of registrable

 

- IP most sought by small to medium enterprises are designs, patents and trademarks.

 - Annual fees apply to keep the protections in force.

- Copyright protects the expression of your idea in original works and cannot be registered.

- The process starts with preparation of a patent specification, which describes the invention, followed by a complete application within 12 months and a patent officer examination, says Brendan Nugent, director of Astute IP.


 

- Applying for a trademark is a two-part process, explains Ursula Hogben, chief operating officer and legal practice director at LegalVision Australia. It starts with an application.


- “IP Australia charge an initial fee of $120 and you'll also need to pay for your trademark attorney or lawyer's fees, which are generally from $300 to $1000, and you will then need to pay a registration fee of $300 in seven-and-a-half months, when the trademark is registered.”
