The Business of Carnival

The Business Of Carnival™ is a web-based series created by Entertainment & Sports Lawyer Carla Parris and it is the first Caribbean entertainment law & business web product. It has been designed to educate persons based in the Caribbean and across the world about the Intellectual Property law and business matters associated with the creative sector and carnival industry. It has also been created to stimulate entrepreneurship and support innovation by providing persons with the tools to create long term revenue and sustainable business ventures. The series also demystifies some of the common misconceptions concerning copyright law and the ownership of creative products such as carnival designs, costumes, and events in an attempt to minimize the exploitation that is rampant within the creative industry.
