Event description

Description

Whether you're a freelancer or professionally employed it's not uncommon to experience difficulties around negotiating rights to your work especially in this constantly changing digital landscape. Getting messed around feels like a daily rite of passage but it shouldn't be. Many creatives are frequently signing things away for less than they should, or lacking the courage to chase down unfair use of their work.

Nation of Billions in collaboration with Photofusion are hosting a Q&A talk for young photographers at the newly launched venue DOWNSTAIRS, at the Department Store in Brixton covering the key issues related to rights, accreditation and plagiarisation as well as familiarising them with copyright law. Young creatives will have a rare opportunity to familiarise themselves with basic copyright law and intellectual property rights.

Increasingly young creatives are finding it hard to commercially protect themselves when it comes to ownership of their work.

Our speakers are Charles Swan, an experienced IP lawyer specialising in Advertising & Marketing, Photography & Visual Arts and Eddie Otchere, a life-long Photofusion member and legendary music photographer. Both will share an open platform to discuss various issues based on their respective professions.

This Q&A will explore how emerging photographers can protect themselves in the new digital landscape. Eddie an analogue photographer will talk from bitter experience relating personal cases and some of the landmark cases related to ownership of copyright. Charles will shed some light on how future photographers can better protect themselves in today’s often-brutal creative world and discuss various legal benchmarks and precedents.

Date: Tuesday 3rd October 2017

Time: 6.30-9.00pm

Place: DOWNSTAIRS, at The Department Store, 248 Ferndale Road, London, SW9 8FR, UK

Refreshments are being provided by Fentimans
