The main goal of this workshop is to learn and delve into the world of image research and archival image and music right clearances. Also, we’ll get familiar with concepts such as “fair use” and orphan works”, which will allow us to discover different ways to reduce costs and limit risks when it comes to include images, pictures and music in our projects.

The workshop combines theory and practice and is especially directed towards documentarists, archivists, archival researchers, directors and producers and anyone who deals with archival material.


In this workshop, we’ll work on these areas:

  1. What is Copyright
  2. Different laws of copyright by country
  3. The current rights Marketplace
  4. New frontiers – description of new media
  5. Trends
  6. Implications and recommendations
