Description

Jigsaw Media and ©Here are delighted to present a one-day event, “Using other people’s stuff” in the Juniper Auditorium at the iconic V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum. The event will take place on Tuesday 26 march 2019 from 10.15 am until 4.00 pm

  • Are you a creator?

  • Do you take photographs?

  • Do you make videos?

  • Do you create illustrated learning and teaching resources?

  • Do you produce video games?

  • Do you use images to promote your business, your organisation, your voluntary organisation?

  • Do you use images in your business use of social media?

  • Do you prepare press releases?

  • Are you concerned that you are using other people’s images correctly?

  • Are you concerned that other people are using your images correctly?


This one-day event will concentrate on the re-use of images in the digital world and examine the rights and wrongs, the good, bad and ugly of using other people’s images and how this use is affected by and protected by copyright. The conference will also consider the use of image galleries, their terms and conditions and their methods of monitoring the use of their products.

Leading the day’s activities is Bartolomeo Meletti, the Copyright Education Creative Director for CREATe and recently appointed Copyright Services Delivery Manager at Learning on Screen.

The conference will be held in the Juniper Auditorium, located in the V&A Design Museum, an integral part of Dundee’s developing waterfront.

This is an ideal opportunity for anyone using, or thinking of using images other than their own to hear about current developments and how best to deal with this challenge. The event also provides the opportunity to visit one of the UK’s most iconic buildings and view the Scottish Design Gallery.

The fee for the event is £90 + VAT per participant to include coffee and pastries on arrival, lunch and all relevant conference papers and presentations.

Applications are invited now through Eventbrite (https://copyrightdundee.eventbrite.co.uk). On receipt of your application, full details of the location and timings for the day will be sent out. For the moment, the V&A is one minute from Dundee’s Tay Bridge rail station and there is plentiful car parking within a 5 minute walk to the venue.

Bartolomeo Meletti

Bartolomeo Meletti is the Copyright Services Delivery Manager at Learning on Screen. He also works as Creative Director of CopyrightUser.org for CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre based at the University of Glasgow. Bartolomeo is also the Director of Worth Knowing Productions, a digital creative team specialised in making complex knowledge accessible through research-based visual tools.

In 2015, and alongside Ronan Deazley, Bartolomeo received the Arts and Humanities Research Councils (AHRC) Innovation Award for Research in Film. This was for their work 'The Adventure of the Girl with the Light Blue Hair', the first episode in 'The Game is On' webseries. 'The Game is On!' is an innovative, research-based copyright education resource that provides teachers and students with a springboard for exploring key principles and ideas underpinning copyright, creativity and the limits of lawful reuse.

Craig Simpson

Craig is the Managing Director of Dundee based marketing agency, Jigsaw Media, where copyright has a daily impact for the Jigsaw team and their clients. Understanding how to 'Use Other People's Stuff' is an integral part of every day!

Craig previously ran Scotland and North of England for the commercial arm of Sky TV and was also Commercial Director at Radio Tay, part of the Bauer Media Group, for 3 years. Copyright played a significant part in these roles, particularly at Sky where the misuse of exclusive copyright, in the form of sporting TV rights, was rife.

Craig is passionate about social media as a marketing platform and is looking forward to sharing his experiences and best practices on how to use these channels effectively and the potential copyright pitfalls that can await.


Amy Thomas

Amy Thomas is a PhD candidate at the University of Glasgow (supported with a collaborative scholarship with CREATe and CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP), and a research assistant with CREATe UK Copyright & Creative Economy Centre. Her doctoral research investigates the role of end user licensing agreements in a copyright context, and how this relates to the concept of user-ship. She also has a keen interest in copyright aspects of video games and eSports. Alongside her thesis work, Amy also acts as the sub-editor for the Copyright Evidence Wiki, and is currently teaching at both the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde.

Alan Rae

Alan Rae began his copyright career in 1988 when his then college Principal asked him to attend a meeting “with something called the CLA – I can’t find the person I want, so you’ll have to do” - Alan has been looking for the missing person ever since!

After 34 happy years in Scottish Further Education, Alan now runs his own copyright consultancy, ©Here, principally serving educational clients. Alan has served on a variety of copyright consultation groups through the years and works with the major collecting agencies on behalf of Scottish Further Education. He lectures on copyright and advises on all aspects of copyright law and legislation.
