The intellectual property created by authors of creative work is the most important commodity for a company in the creative industries. An author of a work should know their rights and manage their intellectual property in a professional manner. For example, painter, cartoonist and author Tove Jansson retained the intellectual property rights to her works and the characters in her works.  This allowed her and her rightholders to license her works for various media [1]. Licensing allows the author to maintain artistic control over the use of their work.
