About this episode

What are the copyright regulations that we need consider when we create and use digital content?

Before we start uploading and streaming content online, it is important to have a good understanding of the legal and copyright requirements for both users and creators. Do we know our rights and limitations? What are the standards we need to follow? In some cases, copyright royalties will need to be paid, and digital platforms assume ownership – we need to be aware of our rights and responsibilities. This session will provide an overview of the key copyright considerations for the digital space.

The session will outline the key peak bodies and organisations that provide support for artists, organisations and users around copyright and legal regulations.
