Who should attend?

The workshops are primarily aimed at delegates from universities, archives, museums, health, public service broadcasting, schools and cultural heritage who have a professional involvement in the creation and curation of digital content. No particular technical knowledge is required a prerequisite

Why are intellectual property rights so important in the creation and curation of digital content?

For public bodies, understanding the implications and roles of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and licensing is essential when delivering digital content, collections and related digital services. This means that at an operational level, it is essential copyright and other IPRs, as well as the permissions required are managed effectively, if these public bodies are to deliver value to their organisations and their users respectively. The internet provides a unique opportunity to deliver your organisation’s content, collections and services and yet, as we enter the second decade of the internet, many struggle with issues surrounding copyright and IPR. Fortunately, there is help at hand through the development of a range of tools, case studies and exemplars of good practice. These and other tried and tested techniques will be showcased at this event.

Topics covered will include:

* The role of IPR and licensing with the context of digital content creation and curation
* Introduction to the Alliance’s IPR and Licensing Toolkit with group persona/scenario sessions
* A watching brief of new developments and topical issues which are informing IPR debate and/or policy, including orphan works and the Digital Economy Act updates
* Case law examples of IPR legislation ‘in action’ and the role of risk managed approach to content creation and curation

By the end of the workshop, delegates will have:

* Gained a better understanding of the role of IPR and licensing with the context of digital content creation and curation
* Understood the role of procedures in their organisation for achieving best copyright practice
* Discussed the Alliance’s IPR and licensing resources and tested them against specific scenarios
* Networked with peers and discussed mutual areas of interest
