The essential one-day starter course for those needing to copy and use
existing content in their new productions and services.
Presented by Richard McCracken, head of IP at the Open University and
co-author of Buying and Clearing Rights (Print, Broadcast and Multimedia
Routledge, 1995) and Alma Hales, Deputy Head of Intellectual Property at the
Open University. This one-day course will offer participants a clearer
understanding of how to approach the process of rights clearance.
Participants will gain an understanding of:
€ types of works which are protected
€ rights ownership and licensing
€ the status of copyright exceptions
€ the meaning of Œfair dealing¹
€ the process of rights clearance
€ how to administer the clearance process
Understanding copyright and how to clear the rights in existing content for
inclusion in new services and productions is a significant challenge for
producers, researchers and multimedia developers. Now universities and
colleges face these challenges as they plan to re-publish existing content
in online courseware delivered through Œvirtual learning environments¹.
There will be a practical hands-on workshop session and there will be a
session offering an opportunity to have your specific rights-related queries
answered by leading practitioners in the field.
