Faculty Research Seminar
Wednesday 14 December, 16.00, room F309
CopyrightUser.org is an online resource aimed at making UK copyright law accessible to creators, media professionals, entrepreneurs, students, and members of the public. The resource aims to inform creators about how to protect their work, how to license and exploit it and how to legally re-use the work of others.
In this talk, Professor Dinusha Mendis will outline how this resource was created and how it can be used by creators, students and the public to understand copyright and use it in their work. She will also be joined by Professor Ruth Towse and Bartolomeo Meletti of the British Film Institute, who are part of this project.

Ruth Towse is Professor of Economics of Creative Economics and Co-Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM)
