Dealing with Digital Rights

June 28, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Watch the webinar here:



Free webinar brought to you by The Space, in association with Arts Council England.

Whether you are translating an existing offering to an online space, or creating something brand new for a digital audience, you’ll need to establish clearly defined permissions for how you are using the work of your own creative team, and those outside it.

In this session we talk through what’s involved with securing digital rights, as well as sharing examples of how rights obstacles have prompted alternative creative paths, often to the benefit of the artwork.



Rob Lindsay, Head of Programmes for The Space, is joined by the following industry experts:


Jamie Smith
Jamie is a Partner at leading media and technology law firm Sheridans, where he is Co-Head of the Interactive Group, focussing on digital content, gaming, animation, AR/VR and digital/interactive media.

Previous roles include in-house posts at The Mill and Sony Playstation, and he has great experience and insight in areas including Contract Law, new Start-up Advice, Game Development, IP/IT, Data Privacy and Software Licensing.

Jamie acts for a number of top creative industry clients across both Europe and the US.


Alex Hancock
Alex has been a Music Supervisor for over fifteen years. He has worked across TV and film projects including Skins, People Just Do Nothing, The Missing and Baptiste. He has advised The Space on a number of projects where specific soundtracks were sought by artists and creative teams.

Alex is the leader of two modules at Point Blank Music School (Intellectual Property and Music Licensing). He also spent ten years as an A&R scout at Warp Records and Publishing.


Lottie Gazzard
Lottie is a highly experienced Director, Producer and Production Manager with over 30 years’ experience working in all genres of television production in the UK and abroad. She has worked with a wealth of organisations to produce a wide variety of live and pre-recorded productions, ranging from the BBC Proms with a multi-million-pound budget, to online streams of performances with a budget of no more than £5k.

Through her vast back-catalogue of work, Lottie has a wealth of experience with the many ways in which rights can prove unique challenges when producing digital versions of arts experiences, and how the solutions to those challenges can often come from how we respond to them as artists ourselves.
