Copyright for Curators and Archivists

Posted by Alison Diamond on May 25, 2019

Copyright course cftbhf

A training course by the Scottish Council on Archives, the Written in the Landscape project and Argyll and Bute Museums and Heritage Forum in understanding copyright law in relation to the use of archives.

Using Copyright: The Card Game, participants will consider a series of scenarios, which are real-life case studies looking at digitisation projects, crowdsourcing, user requests, publications etc. The participants will work in groups to identify the types of works featured in the scenarios, the uses that are being made of them (and how these map to the restricted acts in copyright legislation), any licenses or exceptions that might apply for the use they want to make, and a final round which looks at risk mitigation in detail.

There will be frequent pauses for questions, and to look at specific issues in more detail - e.g. copyright duration, orphan works, the 2039 rule, etc.

Only a few places remain for this free, all-day training event and these must be pre-booked - email: to book. Lunch will be provided for participants.
