Copyright Training

Concentartion in Copyright training - there's a lot to take in!

Jan Hicks, Archives & Information Manager from MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester), has given ten of us an enjoyable, clear and thought-provoking training on understanding copyright.
The trainees have come from all backgrounds: volunteers for Kindling, the National Trust, and the NW Heritage Seed Library at Ordsall Hall as well as representatives from organisations such as Cheshire Garden's Trust, Dunham WI and the Wooden Canal Boat Society.
Topics covered:
What is copyright?
How does it come into existence?
Who owns copyright?
How long does it last?
How does copyright apply to paintings, drawings, photographs, maps, works of architecture and artistic craftsmanship?
Management of copyright including Documentation, Licenses vs full transfer of rights, Explaining copyright to interviewees and caring for the documents,images and sound recordings.

Phew!...all explained clearly by Jan

Some useful unexpected contacts were made between previously unconnected groups in the brief networking catchup at the end.
