About this event

This webinar will focus on exploring the copyright and licensing issues associated with clearing rights for online use of cultural heritage objects. Guest speaker Naomi Korn, joined by Ariadna Matas and Maša Škrinjar, will be answering questions about seeking permissions from rights holders; managing orphan works, carrying out reasonable searches and evaluating risk; documentation of rights and permissions on collections management systems; and other legal issues.

She is the former Chair of the Libraries and Archives Copyright Alliance (LACA). Naomi is a visiting lecturer at City University, University College London and Kingston University. In November 2017, Naomi was appointed a CREATe Industry Fellow and in 2018 Naomi joined the National Lottery Heritage Fund (formerly the HLF) Advisors Network as a sectorial specialist on rights management supporting the National Lottery Heritage Fund and its funded projects.
