The Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM), Business School, will hold a lunch-time event on Friday 14th February 2014, to launch the Copyright User portal. The event will take place from 12-1 pm in EB302. A light lunch will follow from 1 – 1.30 pm providing a further opportunity to chat to the project team.
The Copyright User portal is an independent online resource aimed at making UK copyright law accessible to creators and members of the public.
The project was funded by BU’s Fusion Investment Fund in 2012 and was developed in collaboration with CIPPM and the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice (CEMP)
In August 2013, the CIPPM-led team secured RCUK funding provided by CREATe, University of Glasgow to extend the scope of the project.
The online resource is applicable to anyone who uses copyright – whether it be in education, music, film, gaming, artistic work etc. The objective of the portal is to inform creators on how to protect their work; how to license and exploit it; and how to legally re-use the works of others.
It is a useful tool for creators and the UK creative industries and as such the content is relevant to the various creative stakeholders in the UK.
The session will be useful for anyone involved in the use of copyright works. The session will include presenting the online resource to the attendees and through an interactive session gather feedback on user experience.
