At our next webinar, on Friday May 5th 2023 at 11.00am we are lucky to be joined by Matt Voigts for an extended Copyright News. Not only will he be discussing news about copyright – including some interesting stories – but he’ll also be considering what he has learned about the way the media covers copyright.
As ever, there’s no need to register. Just access the webinar via the Blackboard Ally link.
