Through the copyright community, we help each other meet the copyright challenges that we all experience in the process of making our digital collections available online for reuse.
We are a group of professionals from different sectors interested in copyright and cultural heritage. We exchange best practice and relevant news, and use the expertise in the group to produce guidance for professionals in the sector.
These are some of the things we talked about in 2019

We encourage cultural heritage institutions to celebrate the benefits of the Public Domain. Throughout January, we posted a series of articles and we will continue in February. Here's a selection!
The principle that works in the public domain should remain in the public domain once digitised, which Europeana has defended for almost ten years, was recently incorporated into European law. In this post, we interview Dr. Andrea Wallace, Lecturer in Law at the University of Exeter, about the importance of this provision for the cultural heritage sector and her research on Article 14.See more

Europeana Collections Manager Douglas McCarthy has interviewed a number of cultural heritage professionals about open access for Europeana Pro, but today he tells us more about his own research and the global picture of Open GLAM.See more

In this post Ariadna Matas, Junior Policy Advisor at the Europeana Foundation, offers advice on how to get involved in the stakeholder dialogues on out of commerce works that should take place in every EU member state.See more

Today the European Parliament passed the final compromise text of the Copyright in the Digital Market Directive. This brings an almost five-year-long process to modernise the EU copyright framework to a close. Together with other organisations representing cultural heritage, educational and research organisations, Europeana - on behalf of our Network members - has fought over the past five years to ensure that the package approved today includes measures that meaningfully address the challenges copyright poses for Europe's cultural heritage institutions.See more
