Digitisation is becoming increasingly vital to the sector. This course is designed to help those working in cultural heritage organisations deal confidently with copyright issues generated by digitisation, use of the Internet and other electronic mediums to promote access to collections. Participants on this hands-on course will have opportunities to discuss their existing copyright practices and problems. They will leave with the knowledge and skills to implement best practice in their own organisations.
Trainer/s: Over the last 10 years, Naomi Korn Copyright Consultancy helped a number of organisations to embed Intellectual Property policies, manage and organise their rights, assess their risks, develop accessible toolkits to handle compliance issues and the exploitation of their rights. Naomi takes a keen interest in digital licensing, rights management and rights exploitation. She works across the public sector, in particular with culture and heritage organisations, education institutions, businesses and professional organisations.
This course is for people in cultural heritage organisations wishing to build upon their basic knowledge of copyright and increase their understanding of copyright in the evolving digital age. It is recommended that delegates have attended a Copyright: Essentials (or similar) course previously.
