Intellectual property (IP) law awareness and education amongst creatives is an emerging theme of the IP policy agenda. This is important to society for socio-cultural
growth, but also because research confirms that people with creative personalities are more likely to identify commercial opportunities, start a business and create employment, supporting economic development. This research found that to reach creative people it is important for IP law academics and experts to have a deeper understanding of the psychological traits that distinguish them from other cultural groups such as scientists or business people. How creatives perceive the value of the IP rights in their work influences their behaviour in identifying, managing and enforcing their rights. Through a discussion of ‘creative identity’ theory, linked to practical examples of thoughtful
interventions by the Nottingham Creative IP Project (NCIP), this article examines how academics can transform IP educational practice to specifically target creatives.
