Open Sourcing Smell Culture

Open Sourcing Smell Culture is a year-long collaborative program between IAO and Mediamatic that explores alternative attribution and sharing strategies for the perfume industry. Through workshops and self-directed working groups, we hope to create an exhaustive analysis of the state of intellectual property in perfumery. The program will culminate in the publication of a set of recommendations for open source practices in scent creation and perfumery.

Round Table: Intellectual Property and Scent

As the start of our ongoing research, we organise a workshop on intellectual property and scent. In this day long round-table session, experts in the field of copyright and perfumery come together to assess the landscape and create program goals.
