Publishing often involves use of third party material - from photographs and designs, through graphs, tables and maps, to existing text excepts. In this webinar we'll examine what publishers need to do from a technical legal perspective to ensure that they have the rights to use such material, and how best to approach this in practice. We'll also look at what publishers can do when they can't locate missing rights holders, including the benefits of the UK IPO's orphan works scheme.
