Creative iMedia

This course is made up of four units. The units I was dealing with are:

This means that 75% of the mark is made up of portfolio units.

iMedia: Legal Issue and Restrictions

One thing that comes into every portfolio unit, is a need to write about the legal issues and restrictions that exist when you start to produce commercial products.

This is all about copyright, trademarks and intellectual property rights. It's a really big deal for any company working in the media field.

I've produced a basic guide you can use to teach yourself what this is all about and why it's a big deal.
