The theme of this first meetup event is copyright and creativity in online video. Recent developments on YouTube and other platforms have raised questions and worries: How can small creators protect themselves against others who take and embed 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?

The roundtable format 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, the UK’s leading resource on Copyright for creators and will take part as part of┬áthe CREATe Festival.
