Intellectual property affects everyone. Even from an early age, children consume books, movies, and music, and start to recognize logos. Kids are not likely to learn about trademarks, patents, and copyrights in grade school, so they go by what they hear in pop culture. That information is often flawed. As children grow into young adults, they become songwriters, authors, artists, and entrepreneurs who could use intellectual property to support their dreams. But there is a barrier to entry in terms of truly understanding their rights, because only lawyers are formally trained to navigate the issues. Our children deserve to be empowered by learning the basics about copyrights, trademarks, and patents as early as they can.
Do You Draw Pictures? is a small step in that direction, using easy-to-understand language and fun illustrations to help kids understand intellectual property and how those rights apply to their own lives. Pick up a copy today so you can help the future generation of artists, inventors, and entrepreneurs learn to protect their creations.
