We are delighted to welcome Professor Lionel Bently, from the University of Cambridge Faculty of Law, will be taking us through the key issues to consider about your photography and copyright - definitely a session not to be missed if you want to do anything other than keep your work private!
Professor Bently will look at points such as; when is a photograph protected by copyright? Who owns copyright in a photograph, including when it is taken for a commission for example? He will look at exploiting copyright and when do others need permission, as well as infringement, exceptions and enforcement if you need it (such as the new fast track procedure in the Patents County Court).
Professor Bently is the author of a Creators Rights Alliance pamphlet 'Between a Rock and a Hard Place: The Problems Facing Freelance Creators in the UK Media Market Place' (London: Institute for Employment Rights, 2002).
