Workshop: Copyright Law for Cultural Institutions
July 25-August 5 2011
NYU Tisch School of the Arts
The Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts is offering a course on intellectual-property issues and other ethical considerations in the management, preservation, and dissemination of cultural material in collecting institutions. The course is for students and for professionals who already work with cultural objects.
Among topics: legal and ethical rights relating to cultural material; effect of rights on long-term exhibition of works; clearances; and international considerations in dealing with content created in one jurisdiction, but exhibited or distributed in another.
Students will analyze existing film, video, paper or other cultural material; examine the intellectual property issues; present findings within existing standards of practice in the field; and use electronic means of communication to compare and contrast findings.
The intensive, three-credit graduate-level course will meet in person during the two-week period from July 25-August 5, with an additional online activities each day. More information about the course and instructions on how to register is online.
