Social Media & Intellectual Property: What you need to know.



Speaker: Agnès Maqua, Dietger Glorieux

The purpose of the training is to apply the principles of IP rights (mainly copyright and image rights) to a social media context. After a brief explanation of the main IP principles, we focus on issues including what IP rights you grant to social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter when you share a work; what you can do if someone else is infringing your IP rights on social media and how to avoid infringing third party rights yourselves.

Finally we also address such topics as the use of non-protected works (e.g. public domain), Creative Commons licenses and hyperlinks in a social media context.

Good presentations and speakers

De highlight was IP en social media, wat zeer interessant is aangezien deze regels vaak onduidelijk zijn en niet altijd online te vinden zijn.

It was all very interesting, also the questions after the session because you are confronted with real cases.

The presentation was very well structured and clear. Also happy to see there was enough time for q&a.
