Know your copyright!


Copyright specialists to speak at BPC September meeting



In these days of instant access to almost anything creative, work can find its way to the other side of the planet within seconds.  If you’ve created something: a design, piece of writing, piece of music, logo, photo and so on, you automatically own the copyright.  But how do you go about protecting it?


In particular, this applies to photographers.  If you've captured an image which has the potential to enhance your portfolio, a possible exhibition piece or has what it takes to make you some money, or even rich and famous, you need to protect it.


Birlingham Photography Club (BPC) welcomes the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) to the September 5th meeting at Birlingham Village Hall.  The IPO is the UK’s go to organisation for information on such things as: copyright, patents, trademarks, designs and so on.   September’s  BPC meeting will bring the experts to town when they will explain the type of work that a copyright can be applied to, how to license copyrighted work for third party use and how to sell creative work safely. 

The meeting starts at 7.00pm, Birlingham Village Hall, near Pershore WR10 3AB.  £3 per person, includes light refreshments.  Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.
