CILIP’s annual Copyright Conference takes place on April 7 in London. The conference provides information professionals with a chance to update their knowledge about crucial copyright and licensing related issues and developments. The programme has been curated by Naomi Korn and features two papers by CREATe researchers.
In his talk entitled ‘Navigating the Copyright Cortex: Enabling Digital Cultural Heritage’ Ronan Deazley will introduce the Copyright Cortex: a new online resource providing free, expert, objective and research-led commentary and advice about UK copyright law as it impacts the digitisation, access to, and use of our shared cultural heritage.
Victoria Stobo, presents ‘The archivist who kicked the hornet’s nest: Taking the sting out of digitising 20th century materials’ which will explore the ways in which archives identify, manage and mitigate the risks associated with making third party copyright materials available online.
