Seminar 1: Copyright Essentials for Photo Agencies
Open Plan Law – 31 July 2017
Venue: The Incorporated Society of Musicians Meeting Room, London, W2 3JQ
This will be the first seminar in a series of three, devoted to copyright in the images industry. This initial seminar will cover some basic principles of protection afforded by copyright and its exploitation. The seminar will be divided into two parts, with the first part focusing on what copyright protects and who is entitled to claim such protection, with the second part zooming in on the legal forms through which copyright works are monetized. We will end the seminar considering copyright in the international context. In the subsequent seminars we will discuss infringement, and finally, issues arising in online licensing of content.
