New Guidance on Using Images

The Intellectual Property Office, the official government body responsible for Intellectual Property (IP) rights in the United Kingdom, has just updated its Copyright Notice regarding digital images, photographs and the internet. This excellent new guidance document helps users to understand copyright basics regarding images. It covers topics such as who owns the copyright for an image, when you require permission to use an image and the issues you need to be aware of if you wish to use images in your teaching which you may have found on the internet, taken on your camera phone or been sent by a friend or colleague. It’s an invaluable resource to make sure you stay on the right side of the law when using images.
