We took the time to seat and have a conversation with RGEN one of our member and founder of RGEN MUSIC, a one stop platform for independent music project creations. RGEN is a talented producer that has collaborated and compose for numerous local and international artist such as Ed Sheeran, Wyclef Jean, Fuse ODG, jamelia, GIggs, Tony Lanez and many more. SIP Management : Hi RGEN! it's good to see you again and finally doing this. We appreciate you for making the time. RGEN : No problems, sorry i have been busy with different projects as you guys know and the latest release of my ULTIMATUM project. SIP Management: No worries, and congratulation on the new song, i'm personally loving it. But let's get straight to it as we don't have much time. RGEN : Ok ! SIP Management: Please tell us a bit about yourself and you role at RGEN MUSIC. RGEN: I'm the Managing Director of RGEN Media ltd. I'm also a Music Producer/composer. My job at RGEN MUSIC entails empowering independent musicians to achieve their goals and approach their music career in a sustainable manner. As a producer, similar to my clients, I create music, release it and hope it has an impact on the world. SIP Management: What is your story, what drives and motivates you ? RGEN:. One of the main things that motivates me is the overwhelming, positive, shocked reactions I get when playing new people my music. I always aim to blow my listeners away and the feeling of succesfuly doing so is priceless. I'm also driven and motivated to help shape the industry in a way that is more fair to an independent artist hoping to achieve what signed artists can with the quality of their music alone. The music industry is tough and convoluted. There are aspects to music business that is made unnecessarily complex by design, making it almost impossible to navigate alone. In my 10 years in the inudstry as a music composer some of my greatest achievements like charting top 10 with the hit record "Antenna" by Fuse ODG also doubles up as my greatest failure due to contracts I signed that didn't benefit me in the way i required it to in order to become a financially sustainable individual. SIP Management: Did you have any life-changing experiences that put you on the path that led you to be doing what you’re doing today? RGEN: My path was not due to a life-changing experience but more so a series of events and inability to progress my career in a way that made sense to me. Each time my attempt to secure a studio session with a high profile artist or have my music exploited by a major label fell on deaf ears, i'd spend more time researching why and how to improve. I came to a realisation that a lot of the success an artist may achieve is atributed to who they know and how well they know them. This realisation made me want to change things,close the gap between the music creator and the listener significantly. SIP Management: What is RGEN MUSIC and what are the goals behind this new venture? RGEN: RGENMUSIC is a platform designed to empower independent musicians by providing record label services at a pay as you go rate. We do this by teaming up with multiple companies that do branding and marketing, PR, Visual production and admin services to ensure the quality of work being released is at its highest it can possibly be. We use our network of lawyers to read through contracts and advise our artists on what these contracts entail and the best way to move forward on monetising their music. As an artist myself I am using RGENMUSIC in order to push my debut single featuring singer JayBay "Ultimatum" to the world. SIP Management : What role do play within RGEN MUSIC ? RGEN: I am both the Managing director and essentially a client of rgenmusic. Therefore, I have earned money through rgenmusic by running studio sessions as a sound engineer and sold instrumentals. My main day to day as the MD entails countless hours of networking and solidifying relationships with companies that will provide their services at an affordable rate to the members of the rgenmusic platform. SIP Manegement: has there been a key turning point since you launched this project? RGEN: One of the key turning points in this project was the revealing of the #brokenrecord campaign. Which opened my eyes further to how unfair the music industry is by showing us just how low the payment rate was when artist's music was being played on streaming platforms. This discovery had forced RGENMUSIC to double down on finding ways to bring the value back into music and make creating music a sustainable thing to do for a living. SIP Management: were there any surprises ? RGEN: I've been surprised by the fact that many independent musicians don't consider their music to be an intellectual property,they don't understand that they are a brand and therefore a business themselves. There is some intense learning to be done on the part of musicians so that they can better understand the value of the work they are releasing SIP Manegement: what has been your biggest challenge so far? RGEN:The most challenging aspect has been sustaining the company as a lot of our work came down to educating our clients about music business and the industry as a whole. This was something I personally didn't want to monetise as the education is key for our clients to sensibly use our features and services.Nothing beats the feeling of empowering a musician's success. This has always been the most motivational part of this entire project. SIP Management: What your position on intellectual property (IP)? and what are the lessons for other starting similar projects? RGEN:. Music is IP. without the infrastructure built in order to protect intellectual property music as a medium will not be one that makes money. Understanding this is key in musicians being able to effectively monetise their creation and using our services to further boost the monetisation of thier work.Understand what an IP is thoroughly and leverage your ownership of your IP in order to raise funds for it. SIP Management: What’s next for you in your project/company? What are you looking forward to? RGEN: My company aims to restructure the music industry in a way that supports musicians rather than exploiting them. I aim to grow and become the industry leader in providing these services to musicians at all levels - signed or unsigned. SIP Management: Well, thank you very for sharing about your story and works , I'm sure many members of our community and especially those in the music industry will appreciate this. RGEN: No problems, I appreciate the work you guys have been doing supporting RGEN MUSIC and our vision. SIP Management: Thank you RGEN!... follow the link learn more about RGEN and RGEN MUSIC

In their pursuit of dominance of the metaverse, Facebook is having to deal with a few important trademark hurdles. To acquire the Meta Trademark from all the businesses that currently own such mark in all the classes the dim relevant. And such hostile assertions are leading to amazing headlines. Facebook vs Meta PCs, an Arizona-based company that sells computers, laptops and software for gamers. The PC company filed for the trademark back in August and is willing to sell it to Facebook for $20 million. Read the story by the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/nov/02/meta-parallel-metaverses-facebook-name-change-challenged In the meantime Facebook has struck a deal worth $60 million to acquire the trademark assets of Meta Financial Group, a US regional bank.

Halloween, like any other festivity, sparks the imagination of businesses and individuals alike and very often those sparks materialise in new products and inventions. These inventions and new products sometimes end up becoming an inclusive part of the festivity. The post below provides great examples of popular inventions and products, inspired or associated with the celebration of Halloween. As always for both the individual inventors and business, to maximise the commercialisation of the product or inventions, intellectual property(IP) protection under the form of copyright, design right, trademark or patent must be sought.

It all started as an idea; a simple idea to help creatives and innovative businesses fund their growth by leveraging their intellectual property (IP) and other intangible assets. IP has become the most valuable asset class on the planet, impulsed by a transition to a knowledge based economy and digitalisation. Despite that fact; many individuals and businesses still struggle to understand its importance and to take the necessary steps to protect what is often their most valuable asset, their IP. Hence at SIP Management, we created a platform and community, to make efficient and affordable IP management accessible to all. Early on our journey, a clear emphasis was put onto the potential of blockchain technology and a marketplace model to enable a more efficient and cost effective IP lifecycle management. Today with the popularity of NFTs ( non fungible tokens ) , we set out to showcase to the world what is possible through a new pilot project with our partners and community members. The goal of this project is to help promote creativity and to celebrate the UN International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. About the project The creation of unique NFTs and collections of copyrighted merchandise to showcase the diverse revenue streams possible through a well though IP strategy. A selection of atists curated through ou network of partners and community members. The NFTs will be available on OpenSea.io while the merchandise will be sold via our soon to be launched online store. Introducing Leslie Lumeh, Liberia’s most celebrated and globally renowned artist. Leslie is a cartoonist, illustrator and painter born and raised in Monrovia , Liberia. His first exhibition "Through Your Eyes " in 1993 and marked the first milestone of his internationally acclaimed carrier that followed with his work beind exhibited in famous fairs and galleries around the world; notably in Washington DC, Paris, South Africa, Ivory Coast, Mali and his homeland of Liberia. Through his work Leslie has collaborated with organisations such as UN, ActionAid, UNICEF, The Federal Criminal Court of Bellinzona in Switzerland, The US embassy in Monrovia and many other national and regional agencies. ”Art, unlike any other line of work, has its roots deep in nature. What we paint, or write or sing, is actually a reflection of ourselves that captivates the viewer, penetrates deep into the imagination, and whispers so softly, and yet so meaningfully, into the soul”. — LESLIE LUMEH, ART Talking about his style, Lumeh has stated that he takes his inspiration to paint from scenes in the daily lives of Liberians from all walks of life. His unique creation of suggestive imagery is neither exact or precise yet provides all necessary elements for the viewer to know exactly what is presented. This approach has been described by critics as somewhat romantic, for what appears to be a simple mode of execution, on closer examination, reveals an intricate mastery of colour and design, coupled with subtlety and dexterity in his brush and palette knife technique. To learn more more about this amazing artist please visit LeslieLumeh.com The date of the NFT release will be announced in the coming days on our website.

A Collective Management Organisation (CMO) is a type of licensing body which grants rights on behalf of multiple rights holders in a single (‘blanket’) licence for a single payment or fee. CMOs are usually non-profit organisations controlled by their members; the right holders who task the CMOs with licensing their rights.To upset their administrative costs, CMOs deduct a fee before distributing the rest as royalties to their members. CMOs in the UK and Europe are regulated by the Collective Management of Copyright (EU Directive) Regulations 2016 (“the CRM Regulations”). They come in different forms and are often classified, by the industry vertical the serve: books, movies, music, picture and arts... Music PRS for Music and Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) PRS manages the rights of songwriters, composers and publishers while PPL manages the rights of the record producers and the performers. As all these parties can have rights in a single piece of music, you will often need a licence from both PPL and PRS to get complete copyright coverage if you would like to play recorded music (eg records, CDs, jukebox or the radio) in a public space. Printed material Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) The CLA licenses on behalf of Publishers’ Licensing Services (PLS), the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS), the Design and Artists Collecting Society (DACS) and Picture Industry Collecting Society for Effective Licensing (PICSEL). You may need a licence from the CLA if, for example, you wish to photocopy, scan or re-use content from magazines, books, journals and electronic and online publications. Authors Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) The ALCS uses the CLA to license the rights of its author members. They are responsible for distributing the royalties from the CLA to their members. They do not offer any collective licences themselves but may be able to assist if you are looking to use their members’ works in a way not covered by an existing collective licence. Artistic works and images Design and Artists’ Copyright Society (DACS) DACS manages the licensing of visual artworks for a range of uses, such as print and online publications, broadcasts, advertising and merchandising. You may need a licence from DACS if you wish to use an image of a visual artwork. DACS distributes royalties from the CLA’s collective licensing scheme of secondary uses of images in UK publications (through DACS’ ‘Payback’ scheme). DACS collects Artist’s Resale Right royalties and distributes these royalties to artists and their estates. Artists Collecting Society (ACS) ACS deals with the collection of the Artist’s Resale Right and copyright on behalf of artists and artists’ estates in the UK and EU. CMOs enable artists and creatives to easily license and collect royalties for their work . CMOs can track your work even when it's being used in different countries and ensure you receive payment for its use. If you are an artist or creative with copyrighted work, you should definitely consider joining the appropriate CMO.

What is Trademark Classification? A trademark classification is a way the trademark examiners and applicants' trademark attorneys arrange documents, such as trademark and service mark applications.

An amazing article from 2019 that epxlains the IP issues faced in fashion. The fashion industry has always experienced a high level of copyright infringement . However with the advance of social media and fast fashion , this problem has grown exponentially. Social media has made it easier for copycats to have access to the latest design from their peers, while fast fashion has enabled a fastest turn around from design to mass production and retailing. This phenomenon is driving unfair competition and costing millions of dollars in revenue to the most innovative designers. Counterfeiting goods cost an approximate € 59bn to the 28 nation members of the EU with clothing items listed as the second most counterfeited products. such activities harms designers and brands and very often the smaller brand and designer are the most vulnerable. New laws and regulations are in place to protect designers ; however it’s each designer's responsibility to properly document and protect the ideation process. The SIP Management platform enables designers to protect their work by creating a timed proof of their ideation and development process via the IP Vault. follow the link below to read the full article: https://www.drapersonline.com/retail/the-imitation-game-fashions-intellectual-property-crisis/7033992.article Share your thoughts on the matter, leave a comment.

La Confédération des Sociétés d'auteurs et Compositeurs (CISAC), est une organisation englobant 239 collectivités de management dans 122 pays différents repartis entre L'Amérique Latine et les Caraïbes (50 membres), Le Canada et les États-Unis (16 membres), L'Europe (108 membres), L'Asie et le Pacifique (28 membres), et finalement l'Afrique (37 membres). Ceux-ci représentent plus de 4 millions de créateurs focalisés dans les 5 répertoires majeurs suivants: les arts visuels, l'audiovisuel, l'art dramatique, la littérature et la musique. Grâce à ces collectivités, l'Afrique a connu une croissance importante pendant ces cinq dernières années. Les membres de ces dites collectivités sont répartis dans 32 pays différents et rapportent un total de 78 millions d'euros. Quatre cinquièmes du gain sont à l’origine de trois pays clés: L'Afrique du Sud, L'Algérie et le Maroc. Malheureusement, d’après des études nous observons que l'Afrique se trouve encore dans une période traditionnelle; ne se servant pas autant des méthodes digitales comme espérées ; on constate d'ailleurs une baisse de 9.7% entre l'année 2017 et 2018, tandis que l'usage de la télévision et de la radio est en croissance constante. Les plus grands revenus viennent alors des collectivités télévisuelles et de radio, cependant le monde digital reste un terrain vaste et en attente de découverte. Ceci dit, il a connu une croissance de 32,5% en cinq ans, grâce à l'aide des pays clés ou même des petites sociétés comme celles localisés au Sénégal. Le progrès est possible, car l'Afrique est un continent débordant de créateurs cherchant à faire reconnaître leur travail. C'est pour cela que la CISAC lutte jour après jour pour que ces derniers aient une compensation méritée, en évitant ainsi une exploitation musicale, où artistique, dû au manque d'emploi du droit d'auteur privé, qui au Sénégal représente 10,6% et est devenu un contributeur leader des créateurs et des sociétés. Les collectivités musicales sont au nombre de 72 dans tout le continent (avec une croissance de 35.8% dans les cinq dernières années), et sont majoritairement représentés par la télévision et la radio, générant une valeur de 31 millions d'euros contrairement au digital, qui elle reste l'une des ressources le moins utilisé jusque-là avec une valeur de 11 millions d'euros. Inversement au reste de l'Afrique, le Sénégal montre un progrès et une stabilité positives devenant ainsi un leader régional grâce à l'adoption d'une collectivité de consommation physique et digitale; menée à bien par une société appelée SODAV qui se focalise plus sur le droit d'auteur privé. Malgré les challenges politiques, législatifs ou judiciaires qu'a endurés l'Afrique pendant ces années, les collectivités ont grandi de 29,1% . Entre les 10 premiers pays se trouvent: L'Afrique du Sud, l’Algérie, le Maroc, la Côte d'Ivoire et le Burkina Faso. Le pays représentant une augmentation majeure de collectivités est l'Afrique du Sud en ayant, à elle seule, une croissance d'une valeur de 39 millions d'euros annuels. La CISAC intervient donc en Afrique, comme dans le monde, dans le but d'aider le développement légal des créateurs artistiques, à travers une implantation du respect de lois et de secteurs méritant une exploitation majeure. L'Afrique montre un développement positif et encourageant, ce qui est motivant pour les auteurs qui voient leur futur s'éclaircir, mais pour cela elle se doit de développer plus de sociétés pour l'administration d'autres secteurs hors le musical.

Copyright also referred as Authors' rights represent one of the two branches of Intellectual Property (IP), that relates to to literary and artistic creations, such as books, music, paintings and sculptures, films and technology-based works (such as computer programs and electronic databases). For the purposes of copyright protection, the term “literary and artistic works” includes every original work of authorship, irrespective of its literary or artistic merit. The ideas in the work do not need to be original, but the form of expression must be an original creation by the author. Example of works: books, pamphlets and other writings; lectures, addresses, sermons; dramatic or dramatic-musical works; choreographic works and entertainments in dumb show; musical compositions with or without words; cinematographic works to which are assimilated works expressed by a process analogous to cinematography; works of drawing, painting, architecture, sculpture, engraving and lithography; photographic works to which are assimilated works expressed by a process analogous to photography; works of applied art; illustrations, maps, plans, sketches and three-dimensional works relative to geography, topography, architecture or science; “translations, adaptations, arrangements of music and other alterations of a literary or artistic work,” which “shall be protected as original works without prejudice to the copyright in the original work”; and “collections of literary or artistic works such as encyclopaedias and anthologies which, by reason of the selection and arrangement of their contents, constitute intellectual creations” The rights of performers are also recognised as related rights because their creative intervention is necessary to give life to, for example, motion pictures or musical, dramatic and choreographic works. The duration of copyright begins from the moment the work is created or, under some national laws, when it is “fixed” in tangible form. Copyright protection continues, in general, until a certain time after the death of the author. The author or creator may be the owner of the economic rights or those rights may be transferred to one or more copyright owners. Many countries do not allow the transfer of moral rights. The duration of those rights are generally throughout the life of the author plus not less than 50 years after the author’s death. There is a trend in a number of countries to lengthen the duration of copyright to the life of the author plus 70 years after the author’s death. Copyright protects two types of rights: Economic rights allow right owners to derive financial reward from the use of their works by others. Moral rights allow authors and creators to take certain actions to preserve and protect their link with their work. The laws of many countries provide that the initial right owner may transfer all economic rights in a work to a third party, although often moral rights cannot be transferred. Authors may transfer the economic rights in their works to individuals or companies best able to market them, in return for payment. Such payments are often made dependent on actual use of the works and are referred to as royalties. Transfer of copyright may take one of two forms: assignment and licensing. In some countries, an assignment of copyright is not legally possible, and only licensing is allowed. Licensing means that the copyright owner retains ownership but authorises a third party to carry out certain acts covered by the economic rights, generally for a specific period of time and for a specific purpose. Licensing may also take the form of collective administration of rights. Under collective administration, authors and other right owners grant exclusive licenses to a single entity that acts on their behalf to grant permission for third-party use, collect and distribute remuneration, prevent and detect infringement of rights, and seek remedies for infringement. Protection of copyright and related rights serves the twin objectives of preserving and developing national culture and providing a means for commercial exploitation. source: WIPO
