This chapter raises the notion of whether creativity can be 'bought' and draws on Derrida's category of the 'invention' (as opposed to creativity, which Derrida defines differently) in order to examine closely the criteria of inventiveness. The latter overlap in certain ways with a Badiouian understanding of the event. The chapter goes on to argue, using Badiou's notion of the event and the void, that creativity is abundant and 'free', but that creative industries may be ethically justified in selling other knowledges relating to creative practice, but that they should be clear about what can be 'bought' and that which is - if examined rigorously - always already 'free'.
