Are you an author? by Jon Lever

As a regular writer of articles, hot topics, tips and ideas about the whole CPD and APC world I often wonder about the years of experience it has taken to make writing abouQuestions you can askt

these subjects relevant, any actually quite easy. Along with those years of experience comes the issue of how do you protect your intellectual property or the copyright of your written words…

It lends itself to interesting debate and I can often see myself getting a little hot under the collar when other plagiarise or assume something written by me is just open cheatingsource without often the courteous pause to check what they are doing is ethically correct.

Agreeably a lot of what I do produce I give away for free for the advantage of others but that always comes with the associated kickback of recognition for the author which is what it is often all about, developing a relationship and reputation with your readership.  In todays world, with the social media frenzy, it is so much easier to reach millions of readers..

Which is why the article on page 47 in the March edition of RICS Modus caught my eye as it was an interesting perspective on ‘copyright’ and worth a read.modus 2015

Tip of the Week – APC RICS Rules of Conduct and Ethics pt. 3of3

“Starting Out or Just Finishing? The RICS Rules of Conduct and Professional Ethics are important for ANY part of your Surveying Career” Jon Lever FRICS

 

In this Series of 3 parts Jon will discuss an element of Rules or Ethics and how he would question it at the APC Final Assessment.

A Snippit of Jon Lever’s FRICS MD of DeLever Masterclass on Ethics ?

Masterclasses from DeLever click here


 

This Week: Some of the key questions that you could ask

  •  Do I explain clearly what I promise to do and do I keep to that promise?
  •  Do I look at ways to improve the service I provide to my clients?
  •  How can I help my clients better understand the surveying services that I am offering?

    DeLever helps you pass you APC with a 90%+ pass rate.

    DeLever helps you pass your APC with a 90%+ pass rate.

  •  Am I providing a professional service for a professional fee?
  •  Would the client still employ me if they knew more about me and the workload I have? If not, why not?
  •  Do I put undue pressure on myself and colleagues (especially junior colleagues) to do more than we actually can?

You can read the detail here:  http://www.rics.org/ethicsRICS ethics

But remember Ethics is not the easiest of subjects and not often immediately straight forward, but requires an element of interpretation and of course a good moral compass.
