Carnival in TT and the wider Caribbean is often talked about in terms of art and culture, not so much in terms of intellectual property (IP) rights and how best to monetise one’s carnival-related ventures.

Recognising the need to educate people about this, Carla Parris, entertainment and sports lawyer, decided to draw from her previous media experience in entertainment news to produce the web-based series, The Business of Carnival (TBOC).

Currently both the TT and the Barbados Crop Over edition are available on her YouTube channel: Carla Parris, LLB, LLM and her IG account @thebusinessofcarnival
