IPR and Copyright

Add caption
The other day I attended a digital copyright workshop run by Naomi Korn. She made us aware of the web2rights website, which contains some useful diagnostic tools and flowcharts to help people work their way through the legal issues relating to IPR. Their website addresses questions such as:
  • "Do rights exist in a virtual world and, if so, who owns them?
  • Who owns the rights in works that are a result of collective collaboration?
  • What happens if you can’t find the rights holders?
  • What are the legal risks associated with Web 2.0 engagement?
  • How can risks associated with content reuse be sensibly managed?
 I particularly like the flowcharts as they're quick and easy to use.


  1. Thank you for sharing this information! I found the flowcharts to be particularly informative and important for anyone who creates, commissions, or uses digital content.

  2. Hi Kevin, I agree, the flowcharts are very helpful.I'm planning to publicise them with all the researchers here
