We invite UK-based video creators to join us for a roundtable discussion and networking event at the RSA House in London on 24th June. The theme of this meetup is copyright and creativity in online video production. Recent developments on YouTube and other platforms have raised questions and worries: How can small creators protect themselves from unauthorised taking of content? What are some good ways to obtain licenses for music? Is it possible to parody clips from broadcast TV or film? What is the most effective way of dealing with or disputing a takedown request?
This event is an opportunity for UK video makers to meet face-to-face and talk about issues of importance in a growing industry. Come and get to know other online video entrepreneurs, share stories, and learn new strategies for dealing with copyright issues. The meetup is hosted by copyrightuser.org, the UK’s leading resource on Copyright for creators and will take part during the CREATe Festival, a day-long exploration of the future of digital creativity at RSA house in London.
