Rebecca Imaizumi is a performing artist who established her creative agency, The Unified Wolves, in the UK in 2018. It was essential for her to learn about copyright, especially regarding music use and how to obtain permission from rights holders, to ensure her business complies with copyright laws.
Rebecca and her agency, the Unified Wolves, were Naomi Korn Associates first Virtual Artist in Residence. Between October – December 2018 they received free help and support as part of a community engagement programme aimed at supporting artists with copyright, licensing and privacy.
As I work closely with Naomi and her team, it quickly became apparent that the company culture is built on trust and respect for both artists and content users. Naomi Korn Associates builds a bridge between the two and ensures that artists understand their rights as content creators and those who seek to use the content understand the proper steps to be copyright compliant.
