Presented by Vicky Brown at the Annual Conference of the Visual Resources Association, March 12-15, 2014 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Session 9, Case Studies in International Copyright Compliance: Untangling the Web of Publishing and Sharing Copyrighted Content Online
ORGANIZERS:
Cara Hirsch, Artstor
Allan Kohl, Minneapolis College of Art and Design (on behalf of the VRA Intellectual Property Rights Committee)
Vicky Brown, University of Oxford (on behalf of the VRA International Task Force)

MODERATOR:
Allan Kohl, Minneapolis College of Art and Design
Vicky Brown, University of Oxford

PRESENTERS:
• Matthias Arnold, University of Heidelberg (Germany)
• Vicky Brown, University of Oxford (United Kingdom)
• Marta Bustillo, National College of Art and Design, Dublin (Ireland)
• Lavinia Ciuffa, American Academy in Rome (Italy)
• Marika Sarvilahti, Aalto University, Helsinki (Finland)

Teachers, students and scholars have long been able to rely on fair use in making content available for teaching, research and study within the United States. However, such protections don’t exist outside the United States. This session explores the various ways that visual resource professionals have addressed copyright compliance issues when making images available for educational and scholarly purposes outside of the United States. Using various case studies, the session will address the sharing of image resources between and among different institutions, determining when and how images can be made available to the general public, creating image-based research collaborations across national boundaries, and the international aspects of publishing with images.

  • As I mentioned earlier, my role extends to providing training and advice in sourcing and using images and this of course takes in copyright.So we guide students through the maze that is clearing third party rights - when not covered under the exception of criticism or review - on content they prepare for their doctoral theses, when publishing online through the University’s institutional repository, ORA (a mandatory requirement).We help undergraduates negotiate with archives, libraries and museums for images for their theses and help staff and students more generally with any other copyright-related issues around the topic of images.In return I get help and support from library colleagues here in Oxford, but also elsewhere from HE institutions & support services across the UK – this via closed discussion lists and by attending briefings and training sessions. We are also facing changes in the UK and Europe as copyright is finally facing reform. As early as next month, we may be looking at the introduction of new copyright exceptions, covering the use of images in the classroom and the preservation of library and archival content. This is then an exciting yet unnerving time – if individuals are given more freedom in teaching environments, will the need for them to turn to the VRCs, libraries and learning centres fade away? Or will we become less like gate keepers and more like facilitators? Only time will tell.
  • But returning to my earlier question, why should you be interested in any of this? we don’t live in a vacuum - the web knows no frontierswe have a duty to make ourselves aware of the differences in nations’ copyright laws, if only a basic understandingas we collaborate more and more with international partners, this type of knowledge becomes ever more essential or we risk relationships and productivity breaking down: as LIBER stated in their statement on Copyright in the Digital Age, where legal uncertainty exists, “This hinders the circulation of knowledge and its creation; blunting the impact of infrastructures which have been developed to support collaboration and innovation.”
  • So, to conclude: We are not completely impeded when it comes to copyright in education in the UK, but one needs to be on top of it to ensure continued compliance. There are ways to provide content legally, but they can be labour intensive and this can slow down projects and productivityWe all have a duty to inform ourselves about differences in copyright laws, especially when we are working across legal jurisdictions. Thank you!
