Workshop on photographs and copyright infringement claims

On Wednesday 21st July 2021 from 2-3.30pm BST we will be running our next webinar.

It is aimed at those working in education establishments who have received copyright infringement claims from picture agencies for their use of photographs, some of which are Creative Commons licensed. There are a number of individuals who appear to be deliberately uploading openly licensed photos to sites such as Flickr using older Creative Commons licences that specify images need to be attributed in a particular way. You can read more about this practice in a recent article in Computer Weekly.

We will be joined by Andre Maingot from the Open University who will discuss how his institution has handled these claims. We will also be joined by Sarah Pearson and Brigitte Vezina from Creative Commons who will discuss good practice when using Creative Commons licensed content. The event will include short presentations but also be a workshop to discuss a shared approach from the UK education community to handling these claims in a way that doesn’t encourage the practice some are calling ‘copyright trolling.’

If you would like to attend the workshop, which is being run as a closed event, then please book a free place on Eventbrite and you will be sent joining instructions.
