About the Copyright Community

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. 

Join a group of over 300 professionals and be part of the copyright discussion
