Copyright Licensing: Giving and Receiving

Wednesday, July 23
2–3:30 p.m. (ET)

Whether you are granting or receiving image, media or content licenses this 90-minute webinar will address the top ten must-have’s in your copyright license. Experts will present practical, real life licensing examples to demonstrate the legal significance and importance of each stage of the copyright license. Additionally, attorneys with expert experience in this area will participate in the webinar to provide legal insights into common licensing questions, as well as some of the more uncommon ones.

We invite you to submit questions in advance and examples of licenses which you have worked with in the past that may have caused you angst or confusion.

How Will I Benefit?

By participating in this program, attendees will be better able to:
  • Address typical licensing issues in museums
  • Understand the elements of a license and corresponding impact on the museum’s ability to use the licensed content, or conversely the impact on the licensee’s ability to use museum content
  • Understand the different types of licenses the museum receives
  • Understand the types of template needed on-hand for different situations
