During this session, we will highlight four initiatives from across Europe designed to support cultural heritage professionals dealing with copyright. We hope these different examples will inspire cultural heritage professionals from across Europe and facilitate their own work in this area. You will learn about Meemoo and Hanno Lan's work to use wikidata to identify whether a work is in the public domain; the Scottish and Welsh National Libraries risk assessment tool that helps consistent decision-making; the work of the Europeana taskforce on rights labelling to build copyright capacity; and the guidelines on good practice to manage copyright in an institution, which is currently underway and for which we would love to gather input from participants.

This session took place at Europeana 2020.
