Show Notes

In the warm and comfortable surroundings of the cinema showroom that belongs to Bespoke Home Cinemas in the fine city of Leeds, we're joined by Mel and Giff Malcolm, the husband and wife team behind Bespoke Home Cinemas, and from across the Pennines, we have Oliver Hall from CEDIA award winning firm, Ultamation. Together, we explore the question of image rights and passing off. What happens if you find that a photo of one of your installations has popped up on the website of another integrator, with the implication that it's their work and not yours? What are your options to put a stop to this kind of disreputable behaviour? We’ll also be looking at another problem area for professional home integrators - recruitment. How do you bring new blood into the industry? What attracts the right people and where do those employees of the future come from? Does short-term collaboration work if you want to scale up for larger projects to deliver a professional solution for your client?
