BAPLA copyright webinars

This summer BAPLA are hosting a series of seven interactive copyright webinars by Anna Skurczynska, Founder Director of Open Plan Law. The copyright webinars offer a unique opportunity to develop your professional knowledge of this important subject area. You’ll be learning from an expert in legal issues affecting the photography sector and will be able to ask her questions.

Anna Skurczynska has a broad practice across all areas of Intellectual Property (IP) but with a particular focus on digital copyright, branding, database rights, privacy and data protection, and media law. She advises clients from start-ups to multi-national corporations on exploitation and protection of intellectual property assets. In addition to her legal practice, Anna lectures on Media Law and Ethics at the University of the Arts.

"I have worked alongside Anna Skurczynska for many years. On copyright Anna is a fountain of knowledge and expertise, and I can't wait to learn more from her on the subject.

"Her previous experience working in the industry for a notable photo agency, and having represented a broad spectrum of creative clients, means she knows how to make it relevant to us.

"Additionally, Anna explains the intricacies relating to copyright with proficiency and humour. This is a golden opportunity not to be missed."

Isabelle Doran, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, BAPLA
