CLA Copyright and the Creative Industries bookWhile our Learning Resources Centre (LRC) Manager was following the exhibition track at the Academic and Research Libraries’ Group (ARLG) annual conference at the University of Sussex she picked up this handy guide explaining how copyright works for those working and creating material in the creative industries:

Copyright and the creative industries: a short introduction to copyright and reference guide to related organisations

It lists the contact details of key agencies protecting the rights of the creators.

The Copyright Licensing Agency have an excellent website area CLA Further Education dedicated to how copyright works for those working  in Further Education colleges. Plus they’ve done a guide for students.

There’s also a handy website called Copyright User which explains how copyright protects those who create images, music, film and other works. It’s useful for anyone wanting to copyright the material they have created or use copyrighted material and avoid breaking the law.

The LRC team teaches students on the Access to Higher Education Business, Health and Human Sciences Humanities and Social Sciences and Preaccess about copyright as part of their induction.
