Webinar: Stay on the right side of visual copyright

How to stay on the right side of visual copyright

Copyright law can be a complex and expensive area to navigate, especially in today’s right-click, save-and-share digital world. The rise of smart phones and tablets, along with growing social networks give consumers and businesses the freedom to share and source images at the touch of a button.

In minutes, people can capture and upload visual content direct to their social networks or reproduce content on their website – content which they may not own nor have consent to publish. The truth is, no matter where images are used, they are subject to copyright and possibly other legal rights.

Tune into this webinar to hear from Getty Images how to navigate these issues to make image use as frictionless as possible, while respecting the law and doing the right thing by the image creator. You will learn about:

  • What are the different copyright licences currently used for content?
  • What are the most common copyright mistakes businesses make?
  • Differences between commercial and non-commercial use of content
  • How to secure rights for images of recognisable personalities and landmarks?
  • What to be aware of with the crowdsourced visual content?
  • Where to find free legal visual content
  • Visual copyright checklist,
