What is required to publish arts content digitally?
We know that rights can be one of the single biggest obstacle to sharing your work online.
That’s why The Space has been talking with rights holders, arts organisations and arts representatives including the Musicians’ Union, Equity and the Writers’ Guild about pulling together a new digital rights framework that everyone could work to.
As part of this work we have produced a digital rights toolkit and a range of other resources to try to make it easier for everyone approaching the subject.
Below, you will find links to a number of resources including an introduction to what we mean by digital rights, things to think about when approaching a contract by digital rights expert Ben Green, top tips from leading producers in the field of stage-to-screen; and, a digital rights lexicon that defines the terms around digital rights to help artists and rights holders to know what’s being negotiated.
