About this Event

Who should attend?

As creators in 2020, understanding how to use and protect copyright in the digital world is imperative.

This training, developed and led by leading UK copyright expert, Naomi Korn, has been specially designed for Artists and other creators. It will provide a comprehensive and practical introduction to the basic principles of copyright within the context of creating new works, using works produced by others and protecting rights.

Focussing on the use of technology, this session will provide Artists with the essential knowledge they need to make the most of their work within the digital world. This session will allow participants to:

  • Understand the basic principles of copyright and identify what types of work are protected
  • Consider what you need to do to protect your rights and what you should do next
  • Know who owns the rights in commissioned works
  • Understand how long copyright lasts
  • Consider the exceptions to copyright and how they might help you
  • Discuss social media and how you can make the most of it whilst protecting your rights
  • Discuss how to find and use Creative Commons licensed content you can safely use for free
  • Be guided to other content you can use for free
  • Ask the trainer questions around key related topics
