Workshop – Friday 20 September 10:00 – 13:30
Executive Business Centre – room EB206
The Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market (2019/790) contains important provisions for cultural heritage institution that have not so far received sufficient attention in public debate. In particular, Article 8 introduces a norm that will enable the use of out-of-commerce works on a large scale, either by means of a licensing system administered by Collective Management Organisations, of by effect of a fully-fledged exception to copyright. The norm has a strong impact on cultural institutions engaged in digitisation of their collections and promises to change radically the future of mass-digitisation in Europe.
The workshop brings together academics, policy makers and professionals to address the opportunities and challenges of the implementation of Article 8.
Confirmed speakers include Maurizio Borghi (Bournemouth University), Andrea Wallace (University of Exeter), Julia Fallon (Europeana), Ben White (British Library), Fred Saunderson (National Library of Scotland), Stephen Wyber (IFLA – International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions ), Helena Djurkovic (ERA – Educational Recording Agency), Elizabeth Walley (DACS – Design and Artists Copyright Society), James Bennet (CLA – Copyright Licensing Agency).
