The wisdom of crowds - crowdfunding and crowdsourcing

Seminar at the London Book Fair, Olympia

The popularity of platforms such as Kickstarter is a testimony to the appetite of consumers to get involved in creative projects at an early stage. How are authors and publishers taking advantage of this phenomenon to source both content and funding? An expert panel assesses both the successes and the failures, and passes on tips for those wishing to venture into this exciting world.

Taking Control of Permissions: A Practical Guide to Clearing Permission to Use Third Party Content

Clare Hodder and Ruth Tellis, Rights2 Consultants

Taking Place: The King's Centre, Osney Mead, Oxford

  • Do you find the process of seeking permissions time-consuming and chaotic?
  • Are you confused when trying to interpret licences correctly?
  • Have you found it difficult to ensure you are compliant with licence terms?

As digital publishing develops, more and more asset types are being included in publishing projects, and they all require licenses from their respective rights holders (often multiple per asset) before they can be used. This highly practical course is designed to steer you through the increasingly complicated minefield of clearing permissions when using third party content.

This one-day course will help demystify the process of obtaining permission, proving an insight into

the language and meaning of licence terms, and help you to ensure your business is compliant in the

use of third party material.
