TAGUIG - The Bureau of Copyright and Related Rights (BCRR) of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), in partnership with Kathâ Pilipinas represented by its Founder Daianne Moreno-Mempin and the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) Continuing Real-World Education (CORE), successfully conducted the third Saturday session of its training program titled “Navigating Freelancing Life as a Creative,” on March 16, 2024 at the UA&P Campus, Pasig City, according to the official website of IPOPHL.

The day-long event, aimed at empowering creative professionals with essential knowledge and tools to navigate the freelancing world, featured a learning session presented by BCRR Director Emerson G. Cuyo, who provided a beginner’s guide to copyrighting creative works. A diverse set of participants coming from the performing arts, publishing, visual arts sectors and the academe session actively participated in the session, sharing their experiences as freelance creatives and offering invaluable insights on the significance of copyright in protecting their creations and fostering innovation in the creative industry.

The BCRR also set up a booth to allow attendees to engage directly with the bureau staff, ask their queries and even proceed with registering their creative works on the spot. The booth will continue providing these services until the last day of the training program on Saturday, March 23, 2024.

The BCRR’s participation in this event is part of its continuing thrust to support the growth and development of the creative industries in the Philippines.

Kathâ Pilipinas is a creative social enterprise and arts management initiative established in 2016. Meanwhile, CORE is a project that expanded the UA&P’s program offerings with certain strands, including the Humanities & the Liberal Arts, with training relevant to market needs.
