Copyright and Digitisation Workshop

Participants are invited to arrive from 10am for coffee. The day will start promptly at 10.15 and will include a networking lunch.  We aim to finish the day by 4pm.

Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 10:00

It is the mission of most museums to provide greater public access to the collections in their care, and the advent of a digital society has opened up considerable new opportunities for achieving this goal. However, museums also have a responsibility to protect their collections against miss-use, and, in these difficult economic times, consider how these assets might be used to generate income to support the organisation. How can museums balance these duties?

Museums need to have a clear understanding of Intellectual Property and Copyright, so they can make informed decisions and maximise the use of the collections in their care.

Oxford ASPIRE is delighted to be partnering with Naomi Korn Copyright Consultancy to deliver this insightful and practical workshop on copyright and digitisation for museums.

This comprehensive session will look at the latest developments in the Web and associated rights issues. Topics for discussion will include: copyright and licensing, licensing in a web environment, digitisation workflow, user-generated content and associated rights issues and Creative Commons Licences.

The day will also offer delegates ample opportunity to network and share experiences and ideas with colleagues who are also grappling with Museum IP and digital collections.
