CREATe is delighted to announce the publication of a new resource on the proceedings of the Copyright and Cultural Memory Conference of 2016.

Copyright & Cultural Memory Conference at the Lighthouse

The CaCM2016 resource presents the digital proceedings of the one-day conference designed to explore the essential question: “How does copyright impact the access to and use of our shared cultural heritage across borders, and online?”

CREATe researchers Ronan Deazley (Queen’s University Belfast), Megan Blakely, Kerry Patterson, Victoria Stobo, and Andrea Wallace (all Postgraduate Researchers at the University of Glasgow) addressed the challenges of digitisation, orphan works, intangible cultural heritage, risk-based models of copyright compliance for archive collections, and surrogate intellectual property rights.

The conference featured presentations by CREATe Postgraduate Researchers followed by a discussion with a panel of experts. Afterwards, keynote speaker Simon Tanner (King’s College London) responded to the research. The day concluded with a question and answer session reflecting on the research presented and the role of copyright law and policy in the heritage domain. This resource captures those presentations, along with the panel discussion and question and answer session that followed.

The online resource includes videos of the presentations, a Storify of the Twitter proceedings, and a working paper of the digital proceedings in a citable format.

You can access the resource at: formed part of the larger CREATe Festival, which hosted multiple symposiums in various locations in the United Kingdom. An experimental exhibition, Display At Your Own Risk, preceded the conference on 8 June 2016, kicking off the two-day event.
