1 - What is copyright – principles, context and potential
2 – Working with copyright – applying from principles from Week 1 and licensing

BAFTA Research has teamed up with Creative Skillset to offer this course as part of the Visible Rights Project funded by Innovate UK.

The course will give you a practical grounding in UK copyright and the mechanisms that allow work to be seen, to develop and to create value.

You don’t need to have prior experience working with rights, or a specific level of education to join us. We’re going to explain UK copyright to people working with film and TV materials, who want to understand the potential of effectively using rights. Whether you’re an archivist, producer, researcher or artist interested in working with film and moving image, we welcome you to the course.
