BAPLA will continue its support of fotofringe in 2020, hosting a series of workshop-style industry masterclasses.

The workshops offer an opportunity to develop your professional knowledge, learning from industry insiders, and to share your questions and expertise with peers.

  • Fair dealing versus fair use: Anna Skurczynska, Founder Director of Open Plan Law uses practical examples to explain why we apply the principle of fair dealing in the UK, rather than the US fair use regime which is often more contentious.
  • Skills in contemporary media: industry experts lead discussion on sourcing video and social media content.
  • Let’s talk about rights: a dialogue in the round on publishing rights, building understanding between agencies and publishers by discussing key contractual issues such as model releases.


Thursday 23 April 2020
