Digital Rights Clinic: Clearing Rights for Digital Distribution

June 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Space, with funding from Arts Council England presents a free webinar for arts organisations and artists who want to publish their work online.

This webinar, which complements the Digital Rights Toolkit produced by The Space, was an opportunity to hear from our rights expert about how to approach clearing rights for digital distribution. The sessions addressed issues whether you had an existing piece of work and wanted to now show it online, or whether you were thinking about or beginning production of a piece of work for online distribution.

The webinar mainly covered rights clearances for performance based content, including talks and social content – the principles are relevant for those working in a broad range of arts or cultural settings.



Our expert speaker is Ben Green, founder of Ben Green Associates. Ben advised on digital rights strategy, negotiation and management. Formerly Head of Rights Business Development at the BBC, he has delivered the rights for many ground-breaking digital projects including the BBC iPlayer, partnerships with the V&A & Tate Britain, and the David Bowie musical ‘Lazarus’. Ben will outline what we mean by ‘digital rights’, and what you need to think about whether adapting an existing performance for digital distribution, creating new work for digital or producing marketing content for social sharing.


The Space’s CEO and Creative Director, Fiona Morris will also joined us to provide further insight and perspective. Fiona is a music and arts producer with over 25 years’ experience producing and commissioning programmes. She has worked in the UK indie sector for most of her career but spent 6 years working in BBC Music.  She has produced a variety of award winning films including performance, documentary and entertainment programmes that have received Prix Italia, Emmy, Grammy and BAFTA awards.
