Event description

Description

About the Day

This session will provide an introduction to the sometimes daunting world of rights management. Together we will explore intellectual property rights (IPR), in particular works protected by copyright. The session will offer an overview of copyright and its implications for museums and their audiences. We will discuss basic principles including ownership, duration, obtaining and recording permissions, risk management and orphan works, as well as how to apply the Spectrum 5.0 Rights Management procedure within your organisation.

Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout.

We ask that, where possible, delegates kindly submit questions in advance, to enable us to answer them effectively on the day.

If possible please bring with you any relevant documentation, for sharing and discussion – for example your organisation’s permission forms, IPR policy etc.

Case studies will be presented by your colleagues in the South West region.

Museum staff and volunteers involved in recording, obtaining and/or using collections rights information.

How does this session relate to Arts Council England’s Accreditation Standard?

The course supports the following requirements of the Accreditation Standard:

Regulatory Environment: museums applying for Accreditation must sign a declaration to confirm they meet all relevant legal, safety, ethical, equality, environmental and planning requirements. Using collections you hold for marketing materials, to generate income or for online or hardcopy publication throws up a whole raft of legal and ethical issues that you will need to comply with.


Session Leader:

This session will be led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust. Sarah joined Collections Trust in late April 2016. Originally training as a conservator, Sarah has worked in a variety of collections management and care roles across the UK, including National Museums Scotland and Powell-Cotton Museum in Kent.

As part of Collections Trust’s Arts Council England funded Activity Plan, Sarah will be delivering around 100 events across the English regions, developed in collaboration with the ACE Museum Development teams. The programme will be varied, with themes and delivery approach responding to local needs, ranging from digitisation to documentation planning and backlogs.
