Come and listen to experts and find out what you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the complex world of copyright.
Can I use a photograph I find on the Internet to market a new performance? How many copyrights are there in a music record? What are SAMs? Do works really go out of copyright? Are re-mixes allowed? Are there such things as "orphan works" and can they be adopted/adapted? Can the director of a play be entitled to performance rights? How can copyrights be traced? How many licences/approvals do I need from copyright owners to put on a show?
Three experts will exchange ideas about the fascinating world of copyright, the latest international developments and the way they deal with complex copyright issues to publish music or put on a performance. A wonderful learning opportunity for arts managers and administrators.
