E026 Part 2 - License to Create with Manojna Yeluri

In part 2 of our conversation with Manojna Yeluri - Lawyer and Founder of Artistik License, we continue talking through the legalities of being artists and designers.

We talk about the ways she has used social media to make the law approachable and easy to understand and apply for creatives.

She talks about entitlement in the form of discounts and freebies being a deterrent to the creative economy and industry as a whole.

Among other bad practices in the creative industry, Manojna shares the concept of Passion Exploitation - which tends to justify less payment because the artist or designer is passionate about their work.

She talks about the power of community and support to compare notes and bring awareness about their rights as creators. She also calls out the scarcity mindset of project bidding which can negatively affect both the creator and the industry.

We go into a discussion on economic and opportunity losses and cancellations because of the current Covid-19 situation around the world, and how to navigate it in the legal sense.

We also hear stories of creators taking advantage of other creators in unethical ways and how she as a lawyer dealt with those situations.
