Event Details

Sussex Museums Group in conjuntion with The Collections Trust present:

An introduction to Rights Management

This session will provide an introduction to the sometimes daunting world of rights management. Together we will explore intellectual property rights, in particular works protected by copyright. The session will offer an overview of copyright and its implications for museums, their audiences and collections. 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 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.
