We recently procured Naomi Korn Associates to review how we manage intellectual property rights in the delivery of our work. Naomi and her team were patient, professional and immensely knowledgeable displaying experience and expertise of IPR and how it applies in a Museum context. They listened closely to our questions, understood our challenges and worked with us to identify effective tools and training we can use to effectively manage IPR across all our activities.
