I'm a start-up so I'm sensitive about my IP

- Sabrina Clarke


Imagine being in your kitchen cooking, someone you didn’t know walked in. They said hi, had small conversation, ate your food and left.

That bizarre and random feeling is how it feels when someone takes our Intellecutal Property as small business owners. I am not unique in my experience of people assuming my service, counsel and products are free to be accessed without compensation and respect for the time put in to create it.

Small business owners who run commercial organisations are not charities. We need to ensure that we are supporting small businesses by paying for their service and siting them as our source.
