Our team of experts can help with everything required for copyright and data protection compliance and asset exploitation. We help our clients get fast, authoritative and affordable answers. From a health check to a policy and licensing framework, we have the flexibility to do whatever is needed across all our specialist areas.

Consultancy

We are proud to offer training in all our specialist areas, including Copyright, Intellectual Property Rights, Licensing, Asset Exploitation, Information Law, Contract Law and Data Protection. Our training is practical, authoritative and always delivered in the context of current legal requirements, regulations and technological developments. We work in partnership with sectorial leaders such as BPP University and the Chartered Institute of Librarians and Information Professionals. We also offer our own selection of courses from An Introduction to Copyright, through to Data Protection Officer Training. We run public events, one-to-one learning, e-learning and full day tailored in-house training to best suit our clients’ needs.

Training

Clearance is the process of securing all rights required to use third party content including photographs, archival content, images, audio and film footage. We have handled large collection sizes and are familiar with the complexities involved when clearing historic works such as layered rights or multiple consents. We specialise in the research and procurement of the necessary licences and rights and can help with any project from an article to mass digitisation.

Rights Clearance

The most cost effective way to get year-round support from our team of copyright, data protection and licensing experts is through our Annual Support Services. We offer an Assistant Service which provides regular and tailored copyright and/or data protection support as well as a Named Data Protection Officer Service through which we can fulfil all obligations of the Data Protection Officer role.
