Introduction to Rights Management and Copyright | Crich Tramway Village | Wednesday, 10. April 2019

What will be covered?
This session will provide an introduction to the sometimes daunting world of rights management. Together we will explore identifying collections protected by intellectual property rights, particularly copyright. The session will offer an overview of copyright and its implications for museums, their audiences and collections. We will discuss basic principles including obtaining and recording permissions, risk management and orphan works, as well as how to apply the SPECTRUM Rights Management procedure within your organisation.
Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout.
