Necessary to make a 3-way Licence (artist-HEI-
                             Fine Art Collection)
                                   Non-exclusive
                    Needed to seek the rights to:
        publish images on web for FE/HE use
                      use for publicity purposes
      digitally preserve the image for posterity
Developing a Licence
               Researched existing licences
  Looked at model licences in Recommended
                                 Publications
   Adapted a number of licences to fit the bill
                   = Fine Art Project Licence
Checked by external Lawyers and SIAD Legal
                                         Dept
             The Licence(s)
   The Fine Art Project Licence (each work)
     The AHDS Deposit Licence (each sub-
                                   collection)
      Managing Clearance

                    Licences and cover letters sent

                           Diligence files were kept

             Clear copyright statements on the site
                       Publishing
Licences were then      Images were then
         Submitted     • watermarked
           Checked
                        • clearly accredited
       Inventorised

   Counter-signed,
copied and returned
             Stored
                                  Conclusions
 “Copyright clearance has been the most difficult and time consuming part of
                                                                 the project”
   “… proved a major stumbling block…which required delicate negotiations”


                          research existing licences
                                   

              seek legal advice from within/outside

 make licence as clear and transparant as possible
