Intellectual property and the creative sector 3/3. The public domain

07 / 23 / 2018

In this post, we will talk about those works that can be used without having to seek the author’s permission, that is, those in the public domain. If a work is in the public domain, it means that this work can be freely used, disseminated and even modified (in the case of some creative commons licenses). If it is not in the public domain, then it is compulsory to request permission and, in some cases, pay to obtain a copyright license.

When we think of copyright, writers, artists, photographers and little else comes to mind. But the truth is that intellectual property affects the entire creative sector, from musicians to architects, software developers and designers.  

Phoresy Pack, a customizable backpack by vosq design team

03 / 06 / 2018

Phoresy Pack is the outcome of our explorations in the field of customizable and generative product design. It embodies the idea that the objects we surround ourselves with leave a distinct mark reciprocally, and that with time the user contributes to the appearance of his/her possessions as much as their initial designer, yet in a different fashion.

02 / 09 / 2018

Creative ideas do not always come to us right when we need them. Furthermore, they sometimes appear at unearthly hours or in the most unusual places. But there are specific times in which we need to open a window to creativity, regardless of how blocked it is, and we need to let talent flow. But we are not alone… There are countless creativity techniques and tools that can help us develop new ideas, solve problems or establish a path we had not identified before.
